1: We can’t begin to tell you Just how loved you are We can’t believe how time has flown And how you’ve come so far Forgive us when we stop and stare And tears fall from our eyes Time flew by so quickly Sure took us by surprise We asked you to stay little To always be our baby You said, “I’ll try to if I can, but, I’ll have to grow up...maybe.” Now here you stand before us A respectful, honest man Strong-willed and determined Who always says, “I can” We flip though all your notes and cards And pictures that you drew Recall your quips and humor ‘Unique’, dear son, that’s you! There are no doubts within our minds That you’ll indeed succeed Your future holds so much in store But ‘that smile’ is all you need You’ve always been so gentle, So loving, kind and giving Having you as our son, RJ Is another term for ‘living’ No matter where life leads you No matter what you do We’ll always be your biggest fans And we’ll be here for you.
2: We are | A Mothers Love... With more love than what was ever told, Worth more than all the world in gold, Stronger than Atlas and all his power, More tender than a precious flower.
