    remember not the mistakes i made;
    don't think of what i did as wrong;
    just know that butterflies are free;
    and i loved you all along.

    keep in mind the early mornings
    that might now seem like a dream
    when i held you in my arms and sang
    and promised you'd become a queen.

    think of all the months inside
    and how i talked to you everyday
    and if you never get the note i left-
    It Killed Me to send you away.

    remember that i am your mother still
    and i know i have much to answer for.
    so if the day ever comes when you want to know-
    i will Not turn you away from my door.

    happy birthday, little princess.
    i can't imagine who you think i might be
    but i did what i thought was best for you
    and i'm praying you have a better life than me.

    I AM YOUR MOTHER.
