The Mother of My Children - Desmond Allen © 5/14/2006

The mother of my children; the lover of my soul.
This girl I’ve known since childhood, with her I will grow old.
She has been my lover, she has been my friend.
She has been my children’s nurse, on her they did depend.

The mother of my children, the lover of my soul.
This girl I’ve known since childhood, with her I will grow old.
I’ll love her when we’re ancient, love her when she’s old.
I’ll love her when we’re near the end and moving kind of slow.

She was young and I was too; hardly knew what to do.
Somehow knew it had to be forever.
She was young and I was too; made the vows, said I do.
Now hand in hand our journey had begun.
At first infatuation, and then we courted love;

As friendship grew into the mythic soul mates or folklore.
At first infatuation, and then we courted love.
Still be those kids when we’re near the end and moving kind of slow.

The mother of my children; the lover of my soul.
This girl I’ve known since childhood, with her I will grow old.
She has been my lover, she has been my friend.
She has been my children’s nurse, on her they did depend.

The mother of my children, the lover of my soul.
This girl I’ve known since childhood, with her I will grow old.
I’ll love her when we’re ancient, love her when she’s old.
I’ll love her when we’re near the end and moving kind of slow.

I told her she was special; she told me I was too.
How could we know the perfect love we do?
I told her she was special; she told me I was too.
With hearts as one our life had just begun.

I’ll love her when were ancient, love her when she’s old.
Love her when we’re near the end and moving kind of slow.
She has been my lover, she has been my friend.
She has been my children’s nurse, on her they did depend.
The mother of my children, the lover of my soul.
This girl I’ve known since childhood, with her I will grow old.
