He and I
You cannot fathom the love that I have for him
You cannot possibly love him, the way I always have
My heart aches, as you're now his new lady
No matter what you do… you will never replace me
I am and always will be his.
You will never hold his heart the way I have
You will never see him the way that I do
And you shouldn’t….
I am his mother. You're his new wife
I gave him his origin. I gave him life
I was there from the beginning, nurtured him, watched him grow
You are his future. I can respect that. I know
May he show you the love that I have shown him.
It’s hard raising a man without a father figure.
I raised him to be God-fearing, show love, honor and respect
So please, as his wife, reflect all of that back.
Welcome to the family.
