Mama, she tests the word gingerly on her lips,
Touches her tummy tenderly,
with her fingertips.
As she feels that first flutter, just beneath her
A new life grows inside of her separate and apart.
I am Mama, she whispers softly in a voice filled with love,
newborn babe she cherishes, a gift from Above.
I am here to love you,
nurture you, guide you on your way,
Protect you from all I can as you live
from day to day.
The babe grows so quickly, Mama cares for her each day,
From toddler to
school child, she now begins to find her way.
The years find her blossoming
into a young woman of her own,
Certain she knows all there is to know, now
that she is grown.
Swiftly comes the day when Mama sees her become a wife
Together with her
chosson they will build a brand new life.
The babe becomes a Mama,
calling on Mama to be her guide,
So grateful to have her Mama, theres much
to learn and decide.
The Mama becomes the Bobie, with more kisses and hugs to give
wonderful souls to love, more joy with which to live.
Mama please know, no
matter how old we grow to be
We need you and your loving heart, the
goodness you let us see.
The love you give unconditionally, knowing how much you care,
Lets us get
on with our daily lives, a safety net for all we dare.
May Hashem give
you many beautiful years, filled with strength and health,
always fill your heart, may true nachas be your wealth.
Know that we always need you every moment, each day and each year,
matter how far away we may be, in our hearts you are always near.
We love you
Mama, Bobie, Big Bobie and any other hats you may wear,
That will never cease
to be as long as our lungs breathe and need the air.
We love you!
