Mommy Would you Love Me?
by Laurie Weaver
Link to the original version on ToonaCat.com
Carla colored in her great big book
And took it to Mommy for a look.
Mommy would you love me if I colored rainbows in the sky?
Oh Carla dear, I’d miss you if you went away so high.
Carla pulled her shoes on,
The new ones nice and white
And Mommy tied them up,
Not too loose, or tight.
Mommy would you love me if I marched a Zillion miles?
Carla Dear, if you marched ALL that way, how could I see your pretty smiles?
Carla dug the dirt, with her little hoe.
While Mommy planted flowers in a nice, neat, pretty row.
Mommy would you love me if I dug the biggest hole of all?
Oh Carla Dear, it would scare me silly to think that you might fall!
Carla splashed while Mommy Scrubbed, Giggling silly in the tub.
Mommy would you love me if I blew bubbles across the sea?
Oh Carla dear, how could I get your ears all squeaky clean if you were so far from me?
Carla snuggled onto Mommy’s lap, eye still sleepy from her nap.
Mommy, won’t you love me for ANYTHING I do?
No Carla Dear, my Dearest Dear,
I’ll only ever love you just because you’re you.
