THERE IS NO VELVET SO SOFT AS A MOTHER'S LAP....
NO ROSE AS LOVELY AS HER SMILE..
NO PATH SO FLOWERY AS THAT IMPRINTED WITH HER FOOTSTEPS..
my dear lovely mom...
i hope your special day is blessed with sunshine and smile...
laughter..love and happiness...
if i could give you diamonds
for each tear you cried for me
if i could give you sapphires
for each truth you've helped me see
if i could give you rubies
for the heartache thet you've known
if i could give you pearls
for the wisdom that you've shown
then you'll have a treasure, mother
that would mount up to the skies
that would almost match
the sparkle in your kind and loving eyes
but i have no pearls. no diamonds
as i'm sure you're well aware
so i'll give you gifts more precious
my devotion. love, and cares
