I’m a Mother, I’m a lover, I’m a keeper of the song.
I’m a dreamer and a thinker and I know where I belong.
I’m the centre of a family,
I’m the best that I can give.
I’m the one that gives the life from where the rest of it begins.
I must never lose the image or the meaning of the word.
I must never be afraid to give what everyone deserves.
I’m a Mother first and always,
I can never lose that role.
I’m the one who quietly listens when the anger starts to roll.
I am here and never falter for the children I have born.
I’m a caring loving parent and will always give may all.
I will love in spite of sadness,
I will love in spite of tears,
I will never waive my caring, never changing through the years.
I’m a Mother, I am precious and I don’t need you to see
that I’m also often lonely when my loved ones I don’t see.
But I’m Mother first and foremost
I am Mother I can strive
Even when there’s no-one close to hug, my tears I’ll always hide.
I am Mother, I am lover, I am weak but I am strong.
My Mother love will follow where my heart always abides.
In the centre of a family
In the close heart of my soul,
I am Mother, I am loving, I am keeper of the song.
