You come to me on bended knee,
Mommy will you tell me a story?
Will you hold me tight,
Before you go to sleep tonight?
Tomorrow can we play,
What is a mother to say?
Can you see me in you,
Can you teach me to love as you do?
Can you make me laugh and smile,
Mommy I love being your child.
Mommy will you still love me when I'm all grown-up,
My answer of course is "Yes, my love".
Mommy can I grow up and be like you,
But my darling, it is I who wishes I were more like you.
And when I have faded from this world and all you can do is recall,
Just remember it was I who loved you first and most of all!
To my darling babies: Xach and Kylee
