What song shall I sing for my mother? What key?
Which chords own the notes that will set her joy free?
Was psalm ever born that could raise her hopes high
as the million bright stars she has hung in my sky?
Might one interval be so deep and so wide
that the dreams of her heart could rest safely inside?
Which chorus would ring through her soul like a bell,
proclaiming in cadence what words cannot tell…
that she is a mother of infinite worth,
whose opus has played since the day of my birth?
What song shall I sing for my mother? What key?
Which chords own the notes that will set her joy free?

One melody answers, in strains weak and strong.
Its verses are mine, every line, right or wrong.
I sing for my mother…I’ve sung all along.
My life is the song.

Happy Mother’s Day to my mom…and to every mom.
May the lives of your children be the sweetest songs of your heart.
