Can't believe you were a kid about to raise your own.

World was about to change and you had to do it all alone.

These guys like to plant their seeds and forget to water.

Then you tell them the news, they say the answer's slaughter.


But that wasn't you, you were better than that.

Independent woman with the weight of the world on her back.

People talked, people laughed, and people judged.

But you always had the love of the man up above.


You're the definition of brave, definition of strong.

Loving, caring, loyal––that's the definition of Mom.

Not too long ago we were kids just trying to grow up.

Life is funny cause it doesn't warn you before it shows up.


Now we just young adults just trying to make it through the day.

Through your trials and tribulations, I know you going to find a way.

You'll never be alone, don't forget that we got you.

And never let the opinions of the world ever stop you.


I hope you never cry, never shed a tear.

If you feel like giving up, know that happiness is near.

I just want to scream so loud for you.

I just want you to know that I'm proud of you.


Matter of fact, I don't believe I've ever seen you cry.

Don't know if you were strong for yourself or your little guy.

Can't wait to see him grow up and all the things he'll accomplish.

Wonder how proud he'll be of his mama when you graduate college.


I hope he never does, the bad things that we did.

And when he's old enough to know, tell him this part is for him.

I don't ever want to hear that you disrespected your mother.

No matter how old you get, let her know that you love her.


She was there when you were a baby and couldn't take care of yourself.

It wasn't a marriage, but she was with you in sickness and in health.

And don't believe the world, there ain't a thing you can't do.

Anything is possible as long as you believe in you.


And as for your mother, she's going to do great things.

She might make mistakes, but that's what being human brings.

One day you're going to grow up and know exactly how she feels.

And finally, understand everything a smile conceals.


I hope you never cry, never shed a tear.

If you feel like giving up know that happiness is near.

I just want to scream so loud for you.

I just want you to know that I'm proud of you.
