The Days we were young

Momma, I remember, the days we were young.
I remember the laughs, the songs that were sung.
I remember you and Dad, together hand in hand.
Our parents were the best, in all of the land.
Yes, there were times, when we really did wrong,
And though we were punished, love was there all along.
I remember you gave us your love and your life,
As cooks, teachers, guides, as husband and wife.
Though life was not easy, and yes there were trials,
You taught us that God would be there all the while.
Those days of our childhood are long passed away,
But I still look back, and remember those days.
Momma, you're here, but you live in the past.
Now we're here for you, as long as it lasts.
The love that you gave us, will not be in vain,
It's not the principal, but the interest you've gained.
I guess, what I mean, when it's all said and done,
Momma, I remember, the days we were young.
