You loved me before I was a person,

You loved me before I was a person,

Just because I was yours.

You carried me for nine months

Protecting me even before I was born.

I could not ask for a better Mum,

Than the one I have right now.

No one can ever take your place,

Not after all the things you've done

You cried for me

When you worried about my path.

You scolded me

And tried to pull me back fast.

There's no one I'd rather call Mum,

Than the person who did it all -

Who helped create and shape me

Who'd fight my demons, big and small.

You stayed up late with me,

When I needed your support

To finish and complete

That very last minute report.

I could not ask for a better Mum,

Who could love me the way you do.

You hurt and cry along with me

And for all this I thank you.

You hold me close

Whenever I need comfort.

So I want to give some to you

I'll hug you tight

And whisper in your ear

Mum…..I love you.
