YOU WERE MOM
I can’t quite remember when I first opened my eyes,
From that moment you were always by my side, mother of mine.
You held me when I was hungry, fed me as I drifted back to sleep,
Made me feel secure, washed me and made sure I was always clean.
When I woke from a scary dream it was you who took away my fearful screams,
You were there when I was down, near and always around, you were mom.
You taught me about the things that I should know, about the world as I would grow,
You were a friend, companion, but most of all, you were my mother, you were mom.
Memories I will never forget, I would trade them all for one more day, you went away,
I will see you again in a different kind of land, you were mom, thanks for all that you were.
