I don't have anything of value to leave you
no money or home as I'm sure you see
I never cared much for material things
Just wanted you to be raised better then me
I could have been a better mom I'm sure
but you didn't come with an instruction book
I wanted you and loved you and tried to raise
you right and was hoping thats all it took
You should have had a home of your own
with childhood memories to brighten your day
Instead you moved from town to town
I know I did things the wrong way
I can't change yesterday or go back in time
and I'm not sure if I would
Because I love you both the way you are
and wouldn't change you if I could
So I'm sorry I have no diamonds or gold
But know that this is true.....
To the world I leave my most precious Gems
And they are the two of you...
