I loved you when I saw the sign

And when we knew you were on your way

So if you ever wonder when I’ve loved you,

I’ve loved you every day.

 

I loved you when you arrived

And on my chest you they did lay

From that very first moment, until now,

I’ve loved you every day

 

I loved you when you were up all night

And also when you cried all day

I loved you for your whole first year

I’ve loved you every day

 

I loved you when you couldn’t speak

And grunts and yelps just came my way

I loved when you wanted to be held all the time

I’ve loved you every day

 

I loved you when you started to speak

And began taking steps my way

I’ve loved you crawling, walking, talking

I’ve love you every day

 

I loved you when it all felt hard

And when I was more exhausted than I could say

I loved you through a thousand diapers

I’ve loved you every day

 

I loved you when you laughed and smiled

And when your tears, I wiped away

I’ve loved every single way you’ve been

I’ve loved you every day

 

I’ve loved you when you rode the bench

And when you made the winning play

Winning, losing, trying, tying

I’ve loved you every day

 

I loved you when it all felt easy

And the sun was shining on our days

I’ve loved the joy you’ve given me

I’ve loved you every day

 

I’ve loved you when I’m yelling

Or scolding or taking away

Even when I yelled and scolded

I’ve loved you every day

 

I’ve loved you when I’ve held your hand

And you have wanted me to stay

I’ve loved how much you love me

I’ve loved you every day

 

I’ve loved you when I didn’t like you

Or when your behavior was not okay

I’ve loved you when you said, “I’m sorry”

I’ve loved you every day

 

I’ve loved to get to see you learn

And find the things that fill your days

I’ve loved to watch your mind at work

I’ve loved you every day

 

I’ve loved you when you held me close

And when you’ve pushed me far away

I’ve loved you mad, sad, and all

I’ve loved you every day

 

I’ve loved your becoming who you are

And letting me watch along the way

I’ve loved being your mama

I’ve loved you every day

 

I’ve never been perfect or gotten it right

Every single day

But always my baby you will be

And you love me anyway

 

If you ever wonder how I felt

Or if it’s unclear in any way

Please know that no matter what came about

I’ve loved you every day

 

I loved you from your first moment

And will until my end of days

My darling child, please always know

I’ve loved you every day
