My Boys

As a mom i will always be there for them, day or night
Blessed to be their mom, i wouldn't have it any other way
Caring for my boys has been the best part of my life
Deciding along the way when to let go, little by little, dreading the day they walk out into the world on their own
Everyday watching them change, evolve into the great young men they are today
From the moment conceived until the day i die they will always be my boys
God has trusted me with their lives, nurturing them so they will survive
High hopes that they will be happy with who they become
Interested in their journey, i wait to hear- when they are my age if i served them well
Joined as a family we have strength and peace, knowing that there is always someone to love you and be there if need
Kindness shines through their smiles and lights up their eyes
Leaving the nest is coming way too soon, i don't know what i'm going to do without you
My life in nothing like i thought i would be; it's so much more since i brought you into the world
Now i read myself to sleep, no more books that i have to repeat
Over time you are growing up and i am growing old
Patiently i wait for a visit or a call on the phone just to hear how you're getting along
Quietly i listen as my heart rapidly beats love to hear your voice or kiss your cheek 
Really couldn't ask for 2 better sons; i know your not perfect but you will always be to me and i'm proud to be your mom
Sticking together in good times & bad
Thankful everyday for the time that we had
Until i die i will always be there for you that's no lie
Victory is mine, when you're on your own, productive and happy with a family of your own
Wishing i could turn back time so you'd still be the little boys of mine
X's & O's love ya bunches, mom. all of the time  
You were both truly my inspiration to be a better person everyday
Zippety-do-da you're on your way!
