A Gift



A store bought gift I could not afford
And I know you deserve so much more
So I took some time to write these words
To let you know just you deserve
I would give you the sun
If I thought you would have it
But knowing me I'd drop it and break it
I would give the star's raped around the moon
But we both know we don't have the room
So I'll give you something that I know won't fall apart
Yes !
I know it's the same old gift
I give you my heart
                         HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY
                                      Love Rick
