Until I became a mother, I did not understand
The profound sense of love in a Mother's heart and hands.
As I Whisper, "Mommy loves you", I rock my precious child to sleep.
Small perfection in my arms; sweet breaths, slow and deep.
I now see me as a baby; your rocking me to sleep.
You whisper, "Mommy loves you, my heart is yours to keep."
At last I recognize your love, as a Mother I now see.
As I hold and love my child, you felt that love for me.
I will always be your baby, despite the years that pass.
You have given me my life, and a Mother's heart to last.
The greatest thanks I can offer; more than words can ever say
Is to give my child the love, you gave me everyday.
