I dedicate this poem to a very, very special person in my life whom I love more than life itself. That special someone is my mother, Valyn Hillyard.
Ode to Mom
I have a mother who is quite bright,
who hopes someday I may see the light!
From morning to night she helps me out,
washing the clothes and cleaning throughout.
She washes the dishes and cooks the food;
she makes me feel better when I'm in a bad mood!
So on this Mother's Day
put the cleaning supplies away!
Let your son do the chores and treat you to a Mother's Day dinner - that's the least I can do
for the greatest mother under the sun!
That's right, I'll tell you again - her name is Valyn Hillyard aka Momma, and she's number ONE!
