Mom, I think it’s time you knew Just how special you really are. From the time that I was little You’ve been deep within my heart. The things that you’ve taught me I have learned well. And the scoldings I got then I appreciate now. I’ll never forget the things That you’ve done for us kids, Putting us before yourself And at the top of your list. You’ve always brought the sunshine In the middle of a storm, You’ve made us feel better With your love and concern. We haven’t always agreed About things in my life, And I’ve disappointed you Maybe once or twice, But you still believe in me And you always back me up, And that’s why you’re so special And why you’re loved so very much. It’s because of who you are That I am who I am, And you deserve the best For being a wonderful mother and friend.
