Mother

 

Through winter snow and summer rain
In tears of laughter, tears of pain
Through times of plenty times of need
In act of shame or daring deed
Across the years and distant miles
I've known the warmth of gentle smiles
From one who helped me grow and learn
Yet asked for nothing in return
Who's always lent a helping hand
And held me when I couldn't stand...
The constant flame that lights my way
Has made me who I am today
I'm filled with pride that she's the one
Who taught me to tell right from wrong
You gave me life and call me son
And for all that, I love you mum
