Nobody will ever tell me that I have your blue eyes
The same color hair, or long legs and thin thighs
Nobody will ever say that I “got it from you”
They don't have to lie; I know it's not true
But I'll tell you a few things that people know about us
You taught me to love, to be kind, and to trust
We may not share genes, blood, or skin tone
But I know for a fact, I'll love you now, and when I'm grown
So I may not have your eyes, your blood, or your skin
But you are my mother, and you make my world spin
