A Mother's Love

When you were growing inside of me
I felt proud to carry a life
I done everything just right
And prayed every night
I prayed that you would be strong
Healthy, cute and brave
I ask God to strengthen you child
For this is how I prayed

When you were sick I watched
Over you day and night
Never for one second were
You ever out of my sight
I rubbed your tiny head and  
Wiped your runny nose
Covered you carefully
To keep you from the cold

I kept you from things I thought
Would hurt you in this world
When you have kids of your own
You will understand a mother’s love
I wanted only the best for you 
And you know I still do
I see a lot of me everyday 
That’s now created in you

I’ll put you through school 
To have a good occupation
Granting it through a great education
There is nothing I wouldn’t give
To see you happy in life
A real good job, a prayer life with God
Not to give up; but stand and fight

All these things and more I would give
To you in this wonderful world
But right now child, just accept a mother’s love
