We Are Not Your Children
Music: The Greenwood Tree.
|We are not your children, but|
We write you nonetheless
To wish you Happy Mother's Day
With sweet, sad tenderness.
We loved your child, who cannot write
There is no comfort can assuage
And know that love is like a wave
And break again, and break again
