this is to mother you

By Nick Robison

this is to mother you, to comfort and to get you through

through when your nights are lonely

through when your dreams are only blue

this is to mother you

this is to be with you, to hold you and to kiss you too

for when you need me I will do

what your own mother didn’t do

which is to mother you

all the pain that you have known

all the violence in your soul

all the wrong things you have done

I will take from you when I come

all mistakes made in distress

all your unhappiness

I will take away with my kiss

I will give you tenderness

for child I am so glad I’ve found you

although my arms have always been around you

sweet bird although you did not see me

I saw you

and I’m here to mother you, to comfort and to get you through

through when your nights are lonely

through when your dreams are only blue

this is to mother you
