They called him the chosen one
the one who got all the breaks.
That fair-haired lad with the dashing eyes,
It seemed he made no mistakes.

The chosen one, they said,
has truly found father's favor.
If only we were HIM
life would be so sweetly savored.

In the eyes of the chosen one
life wasn't quite as sweet.
No one knew of all the nights he
cried himself to sleep.

It wasn't for Father's favor he longed
but, Mother's love and care.
She'd often only remind him that,
she had little love left to share.

He would lift his head, brush back the tears
and go along his way.
She'd then smile and remind him,
"Your Father has gone for the day."

They called him the chosen one,
the one who had it all.
He would have felt entirely different,
had not Father made him feel.. so small.

He grew into a man of strength but,
still yearned for the day.
That she would take him into her arms,
three words he needed to hear HER say.

Life comes full circle,
as he would quickly learn.
She came call on him,
on HER he could not turn.

They called him the chosen one,
the one who had it all.
that fair-haired lad with the dashing eyes
no longer felt so small.

She blessed him with her love
and for once she saw HIM cry.
"I love you too, Mother."
She smiled...
and closed her eyes to die.
