Birthdays Are For Mothers

Another year is ending
And for every year that I grow
I realize your presences
Is missed more then you know.

Birthdays are for mothers
For every scream and silent tear
For every step and every lesson
For every meeting of every year

Among the cake and candles
Between the cards and gifts array
Through new years and through Christmas
I miss you the most on this day.

Because Birthdays are for mothers
For every button they had to sew
For every song and every story
For the Love and strength they show.

For every day that that comes to greet me
And every time I take a chance.
For every time I reach the ending
Of every sweet slow dance.

For every time I skinned my knee
For every school box lunch you made.
For every time I had a dream
And every time we played.

Though you were not perfect
And at the time I didn’t understand
You did the best with what you were given
And Loved me the best way a mother can.

Birthdays are for mothers
For every second that they’re here.
For the moments that God gives us
And for the Birthdays of every year.
