My Mommer

She always cared so much for me
even when I was bad
she protected me from the worst
even some stupid fad.

Mommer was the name we created
especially for her
something no other mom was called
short for "Mom the Wonder."

Mommer would send me dollar bills
each week in college
just a little something extra
to increase my knowledge.

We write and call regularly still
I think we always will
it's so good to hear her voice
never can get my fill.

Mommer is 86 years old now
doing the best she can
getting around isn't easy
but she's always got a plan.

I love my Mommer dearly
I often tell her so
Happy Mother's Day Mommer!
You're always in the know.
