Because of you


Because of you I know some things
And a little about life
You raised me to be good
You showed me wrong from right
You made sure I was better
After each time I was sick
And said be judged by 12
Than carried by 6
Because of you – you told me
Write about my life not what I hear
When it stormed you held me
Cause it was the thunder I feared
We always have a good time
You know I be acting crazy
And you told me no matter how old I get
I would always be your baby
Because of you in my life
That’s what made me a better man
And I don’t always do right
Time again you would help me understand
When I needed advice or had a problem
There wasn’t one that you couldn’t solve
So to me you’re that one special person
You’re my queen, my friend, to you my mom

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
