I Love You Mom

One day I was fresh and new and all the world was brand new too.
All the world was fresh and new and mostly all I knew was you. 
You were warm and I was small and you were strong and oh so tall,
And I would always lean on you and you’d be there and this I knew. 

The next day I was taller, stronger, in my estimation, wiser,
Suddenly than you I knew much better and had knowledge wider,
You could never understand, or so I thought, my thoughts and plans,
You could never see my view or know what I was going through.
I forgot that you were once a growing, learning, child too. 

The last day came and you were gone, it came so fast and seemed so long.
I never knew how much I grew, how much I knew because of you. 
I never though I’d see the day when I don’t have you here to say, trust the Lord with all your heart and read His word and never part. 
God gave me you to love, and still,
I love you mom, and always will.
