JJ Heller: A mother like you

You make the best macaroni
We never cared that it came from a box
The mum in the stands
Always clapping her hands
Started cheering and still haven’t stopped

And you held me when I came home crying
‘Cause someone said something that just wasn’t true
I always said that Janelle was my best friend
But really it’s always been you

I know that I haven’t been easy
I hope that I love like you do
‘Cause I know that this world would be better
If everyone had a mother like you

Our second was born in September
I still can’t believe I have kids of my own
I look in their eyes and I can’t help but wonder
Who will they be when they’re grown?

I know it won’t always be easy
I hope I can love like you do
‘Cause I know that my kids will be better
If they have a mother like you
If I am a mother like you
‘Cause I had a mother like you
