Through A Mother's Eyes


 

I want my children to look back
And remember me for who I was, not who I was with.

I want my children to look back
And know that I was always there for them.

And think of me, and smile.

I want my children to look back
And remember times when I played with them.

And say, she taught me about Jesus and his merciful ways.

And be happy that they had me for a mother.

And be able to remember every detail about me.

I want my children to look back
And know that I am in a better place.

I want my children to look back
And know that no matter how old they were, they were always my babies.

I want my children to look back
And be able to see how far they have come on lifeís hard road.

I want my children to look back
And remember the tears I dried when they were scared.

I want my children to look back
And remember how I supported them even if they werenít sure.

I want my children to look back
And know that I would always be there for them.

I want my children to look back
And see what I saw, when they are parents.

I want my children to look back
And remember when I was there for them on their wedding day.

I want my children to look back
And realize that I saw them through a motherís eyes.
