Today, a special day 101 years ago
A baby was born very far away
No fireworks were let off
No dancing in the streets
But it was special
A baby born this day
Would have been 101.

That baby was my mother
That baby would be 101
I celebrate her life
I celebrate her birth
Always remembering
To me, on this day
A special baby born.

Happy Birthday mom
I love you, remembering
On this day
A special baby born.
