why are you here

why are you here?
why are you here to make me laugh
and make me cry?
why are you here to make a cloudy day sunny
and to sing to me when i'm sad?

now i know why you're here
to be the protector and guardian and friend
and just to be the way you are.
you're the person that can chase mosters away
in the .middle of the night.
you're the pearson that can make the sickness go away
you're lovable like a tigar.
you hold my hand when i'm scared.
you keep me warm it's cold,
sometimes you can be mean
but most of the time ypu're sweet and kind.
your sweet-smelling perfume
makes me feel like i'm in a fairyland.
when i'm sad you make me happy somehow someway

you're my mom
