For working hard

And toiling long hours

In hot factories

On sore feet

With tired hands

But peaceful hearts

For not enough pay

And a whole lot of sacrificing

So that Troy and I could have what we needed

And even a little of what we wanted

I thank you

And love you madly.

Happy Labor Day.

(Rest easy, Mommy)
