MOTHER

If I could give you diamonds for each tear you cried for me.

if I could five you sapphires for each truth you’ve helped me see.

If I could give you rubies for the heartache that 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 care.
