Happy Mother’s Day

In honour of the ladies of our lives
The ones who wiped our snotty noses
Those who raised good sons to be good men
Women who stepped in and filled shoes
Either unwillingly left vacant or abandoned
Sisters and friends, surrogates and proxies
Today we remember to thank you
For all the other days we’ve taken for granted
And we remember the lost that we miss
Sending them gratitude with a thought and a prayer
