a mother is loving,
she stays up all night with
your sicknesses coughing and howling
patting you back, comforting
I Love You
I Love Love You
no other words could say it more
your handsome and clever
I can still remember that night,
that night you said you loved me.
holding hands with you,
i love you too.
I'll be there in your darkest hour.
I'll comfort you in your loneliest time.
I'll hug you in your longest sorrows
I'll hold you in your time of need.
“Mom” she says, “I’m going to play the piano
just for you.” she enrolled in lessons
after a while gave up, lost interest never again did she.
Nothing was learned, nothing gained.
