"You're a shame to us, child"
That's what they all said
And there were many times
I wished that I were dead

But to save a young life
I kept up the lie
And I'll never forget
How my son made me cry

There were tears of sadness
But mostly tears of joy
For the life that I had given
To my precious little boy

The feelings of a mother
Are the strongest ones I know
So my heart is heavy--
I'll never see him grow

I love him so much
I did the best I knew how
He is in the most loving hands
And being taken care of now

So, hush, sweet child
And as you're rocked to sleep
Know that I do love you;
Sweet memories I will keep.
