For just one day 
I’d give my life
to know the miracle 
of a single cry
for just once chance 
to hold you close
and show you the 
love and comfort
that only a mother knows
 
For just one whisper of,
“I love you Mom”
I’d give up the earth, the sun
the moon, and stars
to feel little arms wrapped
around my neck
I would honor you
with every breath
 
To see you 
grow into your own
celebrate with pride
for a job well done
to wipe the tears
of your first heartache
there is no sacrifice
I wouldn’t make
 
… for just one day
