A mother's love is fable
A legend we hear today
And yet I know its truth
For never did it stray

A mother's love is able
To ease the wearing strain
To help carry the burdens
To fortify me against pain

A child's love is betrayed
The day they find within
Their identity, their individuality
When their lives truly begin

A child's love is afraid
To be revealed to the world
To show a need for mother
For dependence to be unfurled

I love you mother dear
And I'm not afraid to show
That I'll never cast away
The love you and I know

My love is always here
In my heart that I froze
To preserve the childish trust
While my mind and body grows

I'm forever your child
I'm eternally your friend
I'm infinitely your blood
And this I will defend
