The Hat I Wear

The hat I wear fits well Even when I take it off How long I’ve had it, it’s hard to tell At it some may scoff It’s not new, not old, not a knock-off I do wear others Without them, I couldn’t be Like so many mothers I have a hat for my family And one when my time is just for me With different styles and places to go My hats go with me everywhere Cooking, cleaning, dinner, or a show You may care or stop and stare At the hat I place upon my hair My favorite hat is the one I choose That keeps me true to myself It’s the one I most fear to lose More than my health or wealth When not on my head, it’s safe on a shelf
