Good morning mum,
Good morning mums everywhere; unsung heroes who miraculously do –
Good morning to mums who melt into the background and let their children shine.
Good morning to quiet mums like mine.
Good morning, good morning, to good morning mums, to mums who bake and make and sew and help small things grow.
Good morning mums’ hips, bums and tums,
Good morning to varicose vein mums, breast cancer mums, hip op mums, cyst on your ovaries mums, and what is more difficult, good morning to mums with cancer of the esophagus,
Good morning to mums with children, to mums without children, to mums of murdered children, good morning to mums of silenced children.
Good morning to mums of singing children, of dancing children, of diving, and prancing, ballet and riding, elocution and human rights children.
Good morning to mums of cyclists, skateboarders, ice champions and book hoarders, doll collectors, body boarders, writers, teachers, street sellers, rock climbers, actors, stunt men and women, nurses, doctors, trapeze artists; good morning mums.
Good morning to mums of retail mums, to mums of statesticians, beauticians, to veterinary mums, to brain surgeon mums, to professor mums, to yoga, belly dancer, street sweeper, roofer, welder, runner and winger mums.
Good morning mums.
