I have waited for you with beating heart
Trembling with anticipation
Arms opened wide for an embrace
Waiting to see your eyes, your face.
How can you know the depths of my love?
I do not think most boys really understand.
Your boyish smile is the delight of my life,
Your desire to protect me is a quality I love,
Your striving for respect is beyond admirable,
And all that you are I love.
I am your mother, your grandmother, your sister, your wife.
I am all the women in your life.
You are my boy, my son, my grandson, my brother, and My Man.
