"TO ALL THE
WE'VE LOVED BEFORE"
Each year in Mid-May
'Long with the sun's longer rays
And the birds and the flowers
(And longer bright hours),
Comes a day set for
Who've kissed noses and healed thumbs
Found our lost caterpillars
And read 'Wind in the Willows'
Chased rainbows unending
And set new dreams up-ending
Whilst the vigil she kept
And over trials she wept
Through the heat and the cold -
As young lifetimes unfold.
And somehow, despite any travail
Be it with offspring, or small snail...
She just kept leaving 'NEW LIFE' in her trail.
A VERY HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO YOU ALL!!

"To All the 'Mums' We've Loved Before", pays homage to the
1984 Julio Iglesias and Willie Nelson duo,
"To All the Girls I've Loved Before".
Written by Hal David and Albert Hammond in 1975, the Iglesias / Nelson recording of
"To All the Girls I've Loved Before" peaked at #5 on Billboard Hot 100, #1 on Canadian RPM Top Singles,
#1 on the country chart, and was named the 1984 single of the year by the Academy of Country Music.
As well, Nelson and Iglesias were named the 1984 "Duo of the year" by the Country Music Association.
YouTube fearures several very good versions.
If you haven't listened to it in a while, it is
well worth a visit - including, of course,
all the "Mums" among the
"all the girls"
to whom they so affectionately
"dedicate this song".
