Happy Father’s Day: A Tribute

Happy Father’s Day
To the mother who’s raising her children alone
Day in and day out
You work your fingers to the bone

Happy Father’s Day
To the mother who needs to rest
Crying and weary
You press on and do your very best

Happy Father’s Day
To the mother with the world on her shoulders
Each day father time
reminds you that your children are getting older

Happy Father’s Day
To the mother who has to do everything
When times are tough and
you have had enough
It’s your children who make your heart sing

Happy Father’s Day
To the mother who has to do the discipline
A day off? Chile, please!
You cannot remember when

Happy Father’s Day
To the mother who put her dreams on hold
Your love and dedication
is worth more than gold

Happy Father’s Day
To the mother who’s raising her children all alone
What will be left of your dreams
after the babies are all grown

Happy Father’s Day
Mama, I’m so sorry you gotta do this alone
Great things you will reap
Because of all the seeds you have sown

Happy Father’s Day
Daddy’s place you cannot take
But we see you
Holding it together, trying to mend past mistakes

Happy Father’s Day
Some children will have no one to celebrate
There are people standing in dad’s absence
Who give them someone to elevate

Happy Father’s Day
