My mother said she lost ten pounds,
while standing at the mirror,
and then I saw, despite her smile,
there slid a great big tear.
I thought, “Poor Mom, I’ll help her search;
those pounds must be around.”
And though I looked just everywhere,
nothing could be found.
To tell the truth, I wasn’t sure
exactly what I’d see,
but if I found them, I would know
cause ten of them they’d be!
