The original lyrics were written in 1915 by Theodore Morse and the song is entitled, “M-O-T-H-E-R: A word that means the world to me.”
M Is for the Many things she gave me,
O Means only that she’s growing Old.
T Is for the Tears she shed to save me,
H Is for her Heart of purest gold.
E Is for her Eyes with love light shining,
R Means Right and Right she’ll always be
Put them all together, They spell Mother.
A word that means the world to me.
Remembering my wonderful mother, Jackie, on Mother’s Day. Celebrating this beautiful day with Anne, the lovely mother of my children. And wishing to all the other mothers in the world, a very happy Mother’s Day!
