Happy Mother’s Day

If i could give you diamonds

for each tear you cried for me.

If i could give you saphires

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’d 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 are well aware

so i’ll give you gifts more precious

my devotion, love and care.

-Happy Mother’s Day
