Just because I'm not always around
doesn't mean that you're far from my heart.
Just because I'm growing up
doesn't mean we'll be driven apart.
The phone's always at reach
if you ever need to talk.
My door's always open if you ever
feel the need to knock.
You and I will always have that bond
that deep down inside I have always known.
What will never cease to amaze me
is the love through the years you have shown.
Even when at times I have hurt you
you forgave me with your loving ways.
The size of your heart and soul
Is like a beauty-filled, enormous maze.
But just like a newly grown butterfly
I have to spread my wings and go,
Just like an oversized caterpillar
has to leave its cacoon to grow.
But you'll always be my beautiful mother
and your daughter I'll always be.
Nothing could ever change
what you'll always mean to me..
