Today we pause to honour all types of mother or mum
As this role is filled by another for some
Then there’s those who’ve lost daughter or son
No less honour for them oughta become

And the mothers of orphans, both young and old
Perhaps gone before; perhaps not enrolled
Whose children are left behind; no mother to behold
But still worthy of honour, though pain may be unresolved

And what of the mothers who have lost a child before term
The sometimes forgotten ones, these mothers we now confirm
Their miscarriages and stillbirths of grave concern
But their roles as mothers, we honour as we affirm

So, come one, come all, on this special day
Gather round and join the call to say
Together as one, we open our hearts and pray
To give honour to mothers and mums yet again today
