I remember feeling comfortable
Holding you in my arms,
Being totally in awe
Of all your baby charms.

I remember rocking you in your cradle
And singing a lullaby,
Nursing you through midnight hours
Not wanting you to cry.

I remember when you would wake
All cosy and warm from sleep,
Feeling such love for you
It oft times made me weep.

And now when I look at you
I see the women you have become,
It totally overwhelms me
That I have been your Mum.

I often hear the music
Of the lullabies I would sing,
The memories are beautiful
And such special joy they bring.
