I Call You ‘Mom’ With Pride

I'm so thankful you're my mother
Where would I ever be
Without the tender loving care
You have always given me

Through all my growing up years
You taught me right from wrong
Showing me what's important
And giving me a song

Life has a way of pushing us down
But you were always there
To listen when I'd vent or cry
When life was so unfair

I know I gave you headaches
We made each other mad
I didn't always take your advice
But later, wished I had

These past few years have went by
With struggles far from few
But mom, you stood so strong
And helped to pull us through

Those weeks I spent in the hospital
You were with me every day
To help me eat and comb my hair
Or let me sleep the day away

You've been my rock through so much
Through the high points and the low
The time you've given is priceless
And I just want you to know

I'm always gonna need you
To be there by my side
No one could ever take your place
And I call you 'mom' with pride
