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 have no Pearls, no Diamonds,
As I'm sure you're well aware.
So I'll give you gifts more precious,
My Devotion, Love and Care...
To all the Mothers and people who have taken on
the role as a Mother...
Today, I celebrate you...
The Dedication, Love & Devotion that you've shown.
Always thinking of everyone before yourself.
You are the backbone, time keeper and chauffeur.
The lessons that you have taught,
even if you never said a word.
Today, I just wanted to take a moment to tell you
that you are Appreciated, Loved & Cherished.
Thank you for all you have done & continue to do...
You have helped to shape future generations to come
with your love...
