If I could give you diamonds for each tear you cried for me.
If I could give five 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 you 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. Anon
Groete op hierdie spesiale dag.
