Description

I know I haven't been perfect I never claimed to be But ever parent says that it's worth it And I can't disagree I was just a child myself When I made my mind up to be yours forever And you were my baby I was your Mama Right now everything is changing But that's not gonna 'Cause I made a promise And I'm gonna keep it It's not blood that makes it true It's the love I have for you Every lullabye, every kiss goodnight Every time I tied your shoes Every drive home from school Every tooth fairy dime Every five minute time out I'm yours, always. I'm not just your used-to-be-stepmom You're not just my used-to-be-kid Until the end of time, it might take long, I'm gonna love you like I always did You're on my mind day and night Crossing my fingers as I watch you take flight And you're still my baby I'm still your Mama Right now everything is changing But that's not gonna 'Cause I made a promise And I'm gonna keep it It's not blood that makes it true It's the love I have for you Every fight, every tear Every middle school fear Every teenage romance And your first awkward slow dance All the trampoline fun When you're homework is done I'm yours, always. When you're sick, when you're sleepy Any reason that you need me To help with math or braid your hair Call my name and I'll be there Remember running in the rain? Remember snuggles under blankets? Drawing pictures on your back Do you remember that? Soon you'll be a lady But I'll still be your Mama No one can take that away Fact is I'm here to stay 'Cause I made a promise And I keep my promises It's not blood that makes it true It's the the love I have for you Every graduation day Every love that walks away Every job, every move Every time you try out something new And if the day comes That someone calls you "Mama" I'll be there, I'm yours, always.
