You brushed my hair and tucked me in,
Made me laugh for hours on end.
You kissed my boo-boos when I fooled around.
Mommy, you never let me down.
You held my hand as I got my shots
Then took me for ice cream that hit the spot.
You bought me Polly Pockets and Barbies, too.
Mommy, there’s no one quite like you.
You held my hand as I walked through the door,
Then you met my teacher as I stared at the floor.
You told me it’d be fun and I’d make friends too,
And for that reason, Mommy, I love you.
You listened to me talk about the drama and boys
Then taught me how to handle it with class and poise.
You spoke with wisdom and of things you know.
You love to hear me say, “Mommy, you told me so.”
You love the Lord with all you heart,
And you’re kind and gentle and pretty and smart.
If I could be anyone, I’d pick you,
‘Cause, Mommy, the world would be better with two of you.
You’ve taught me so much, with more in store,
And with each day that passes, I love you more.
