Is there a heart that cares for some other?
Then it must be the heart of a mother.
Five-sixth of her name, it takes to spell other.
So cherish your own, for you’ll not get another.
Five-sixth of her name, the same of her day.
Devoted to others and asking no pay.
Only her love could make her this way.
In self-sacrificing, her love to convey.
Mothers and others, they’re almost the same.
God knew this was true and gave her that name
No greater goal could anyone claim.
If you’re a young girl, make that your aim.
