My mother is my friend through the thick and through the thin,
she will be in my corner and by my side until the very end.
I confide in her my secret thoughts, for she has my deepest trust,
at times I hesitate to share, but eventually I know that I must.
She always gives an honest opinion, from her point of view,
while trying not to come right out and say what I should do.
My mother is my very best friend, from God above she’s a gift,
just knowing I have her in my life gives my heart a remarkable lift.
