Thanks Mum

Mother If I could give you diamonds For each tear you cried for me If I could give you sapphires For each truth you’ve helped me see If I could give you rubies For the heartache that you’ve known If I could give you pearls For the wisdom that you’ve shown Then you’ll have a treasure, mother, That would mount up to the skies That would almost match The sparkle in your kind and loving eyes But I am sure you’re well aware My devotion, love and care Are always with you Thank you mum
