Iíve never heard your voice
Nor have I seen your face
And yet I know you well.
There is so much that
Iíve experienced in life
So many things to tell.
As the day draws ever nearer
Instead of my thoughts becoming clearer
Confusion fills my heart
Iím happy and excited
Iím afraid and nervous
I donít know where to start
Your life is so very precious
Your future is in my hands.
Itís difficult to look for advice
No-one really understands
Itís up to me to mold you
To teach you and to scold you
Yet all I really want right now
Is just the chance to hold you.
I ask you for forgiveness
For things I may do wrong
I ask you for understanding
When I am not that strong
Together weíll face lifeís trials
Together weíll always pull through
I know that I can do anything
As long as I have you.
I know that this journey will not be easy
The road ahead is long
We face so many trials
Heartache, tears and song.
Each accomplishment you have in life
Iíll be so proud of you
Each obstacle that you face in life
Iíll help you to get through.
Letís walk this road together
Your little hand in mine
And if we stumble along the way
At least weíll still be fine.
The bond we share who could understand?
A mother and her son
As long as we love and cherish each other
Our race is already won
Iíll take the good Iíve learned in life
Iíll give it all to you
Iíll teach you to think for yourself
To make decisions that are true
Iíve never done this before
Everything is still brand new
Weíll discover it all together
Just me and you
One day when you are all grown up
Youíll look at me and say
ďWe did it mom,
We made it all the wayĒ.
ďNow it has become my turn
To help my children grow and learn
I only hope I can be strong and true
And a worthy parent, just like you.Ē
Bronwyn Johnson, 1998
