When you were growing inside of her,
You listened contently to her heart,
Took great comfort in her voice,
You thought you’d never be apart.
Then you came out into the world,
Your blurry view caught her smiling eyes,
When they placed you on her chest,
The fear dissolved with no more cries.
As you grew you felt her love,
It helped you on your way,
Each new step you learned to take,
By your side you knew she’d stay.
When your were sad or feeling hurt,
She held you tight on her knee,
No one could take away from you,
The beauty she would always see.
The many nights she stayed up and worried,
Keeping much of what she felt inside,
Always hoping that she taught you well,
That what you knew to be right wasn’t denied.
Then you grew up and had your own,
Your heart has been overwhelmed by love,
All the times you overlooked her work,
Knowing now there could be nothing above.
Look into your mother’s eyes,
And hold her close and tight,
The bond you share is like no other,
You feel the glory of pure love in all its light.
