Mother And Son    3:20
(Brenda Linton/North Shores Music/BMI)

The day you were born,
your spirit moved through me
to drink in the air,
atoms of mystery.
Turning toward my voice,
you raised your tiny fist
and the world rushed to meet you
in the softness of a kiss.

I am the teacher and the one who is taught.
One who is loved, one who has a loving heart.
Your life's lessons are bound to my truth,
and my wisdom finds its voice in you.
Oh my son, Oh my son,
what joy you bring to me.

Now the circle is complete,
you are on your own.
And I could not be prouder
of the man you have become.
But in my mind, I see a child
with eyes that sparkle in delight
and such joy in understanding,
I am dazzled by the light.

I am the teacher and the one who is taught.
One who is loved, one who has a loving heart.
Your life's lessons are bound to my truth,
and my wisdom finds its voice in you.
Oh my son, Oh my son,
what joy you bring to me.
