For you mum

As I opened my eyes I saw you

As I took my first steps I held you,

You showed me the world and lived your dreams through me;

You taught me things no school could teach!

You believed in me no matter what I turned out to be;

That I suppose is the secret of your love.


You are the place I come from my first home;

You are the map I follow with every step I take;

Now that I am far apart, I carry your heart in mine

Just like you carried me in you;

And if you look deep down

You will always see a piece of me in you!


Where ever I am it does not matter;

But where you are is what matters...

Cos that's what I call home!
