Today is my wife’s birthday. I wrote a song with a simple melody for it so that our two youngest could sing it together with me for her.
When Mummy hears this little song, she might begin to cry;
It tells her how we love her and lots of reasons why:
Cuddles before breakfast are the best start to a day;
And as far as we can see, it’ll always be that way.
So many things you cook for us with skill and lots of love,
Experimental recipes we’re so glad you thought of;
Creative crafts and projects that help us to create
Many clever, pretty things that we can imitate;
Fun businesses and startups that bless so many hearts:
Bouncy castles, candy floss, embroidered works of art;
Plays on words and running jokes that add that extra spice,
All in all, our precious Mum, life with you is so nice.
A kiss goodnight that sends us off to all the sweetest dreams;
Your love can work such magic that’s limitless, it seems;
You remember lots of things that we need every day,
So remember, we love you in lots of different ways.
