Of all the gifts I can recall,
my mother's love is the best of all
I can't repay the lessons
That you taught when I was small,
Or give you gift for gift,
Each special moment I recall...
I can't return encouragement
And loving words of praise
In quite the way you did for me
Through all my childhood days...
But there's one gift that I can give,
It's all the love you've earned,
For love is what you always taught...
And love is what I learned.
