In Tribute 

M-O-T-H-E-R, ever since you
felt the germ of me
growing inside of you
you knew you L-O-V-E me
and i'm in L-O-V-E with you 

Your heartbeat was an X-tension
of my heartbeat
and today, that Inter-konnection
is as strong as it was
the first time you felt my Summer-salt
in your womb 

i love the way you show
you care, by giving part
of your life to me
you, M-O-T-H-E-R, brought me into
this light, this life 

i'm here so you can
see your life in my eyes
your life is an X-tension of mine
and i take you into the
n-e-X-t generation through
sharing my world X-periences 

M-O-T-H-E-R, you will see life's
beauties in me
just as i see beauty in you
from the time i
entered this world screaming
at the dawn of light 

it was not that i was mad
but that i cried out in joy
so that Y-O-U may touch my
silken tears and
through those tears
our Inter-konnection bond
was sealed for life's E-T-E-R-N-I-T-Y. 

M-O-T-H-E-R BE P-R-A-I-S-E-D
