Your words mean a lot to me,
They make the whole world see.
Your words of love and wisdom too,
I hope I grow to be like you.
A mother and father wrapped in one,
Your work on earth is never done.
You work so hard to give nice things,
Three jobs, and still has time to sing.
Knowing you raised on your own,
With hurt and pain never shown,
A nonstop trial to all who dared,
You were the only one who cared.
That's why I ask God everyday,
To make me the exact same way.
To show me how to be like you,
And tell me exactly what to do.
But now I know just what to do,
Because I am, I'm just like you.
