Because I love you

I drove six hours just to surprise you

 

Being spontaneous is something I never really do

 

I opened your door and once you saw me you squealed with joy

 

Tears coming to your eyes as you see your little boy

 

I could never forget what you were able to do

 

I lost one, yet you still managed to fill in for two

 

 

 

It was a dark early morning, we could never forget

 

But with each other-you, me, sister, and brother

 

Nothing was impossible, nothing was over yet

 

Because we had you, our beautiful mother

 

You always told us "Do not cry, do not fret"

 

“No matter what, we will always have each other.”

 

We’d look to you, our mother, our safety net

 

 

 

When I came back home, you held me close

 

Mom, you’re the woman I love the most

 

I’m sorry it took me so long to come home

 

I always thought I liked doing things on my own

 

But you were patient and you were kind

 

You gave me time to let me go through my mind

 

“Mom, why do you forgive us no matter what we do?”

 

You said, “Son, everything I do is because I love you”
