Mother have I told you

I’m so proud to be your son?

Have I ever thanked you

for the many things you’ve done?


Have I shown you by my actions

my gratitude and love?

Have I given you the praise

you are so deserving of?


If you could look into my heart

you would quickly see,

the special place you hold there

and how much you mean to me.


I may not have always shown it

by the things I say and do,

but there’s no mother in the world

more loved, dear mom, than you.
