I wasn’t prepared for the day that you came
how tired I’d be or how much things would change
i couldn’t have guessed how the nights turned to days
what each minute felt like, or in how many ways
that you would take what I never knew to be there
you would light up the dimness, but I wasn’t prepared.
I wasn’t prepared for the new life with you,
how time would stand still, each day so brand new
I struggled to know how to feel about
the truth that I couldn’t live with you, but can’t live without.
I wasn’t prepared for how fast it all goes
I look at you now, how much you have grown
it’s a giver and thief, the time that we share
they told me it would happen, but I wasn’t prepared.
I wasn’t prepared for the love I would find
how much I would treasure the brown in your eyes
how deeply rooted in this heart of mine
My darling forever, your Mom ever thine.
