I May Not Remember

I may not remember the first time we met
 the first lullaby you sang
 or the first walk in the park
I do recall the concern on your face
 when you came running down the hall
 because I was afraid of the dark
I may not remember my first steps with your help
 the first tooth that appeared
 or the first trip to the zoo
I do recall the tears on your cheeks
 when my first day of school arrived
 it was much harder on you
I don't have to remember everything
 to know what you've given me I'll never forget
Along with respect, honesty, and all that is good
 I've learned that compassion, sympathy, and love 
  equal motherhood
