A Song for Mama

Remembering my beautiful mother these next few days...


My brothers and I would sing this song to her every mother's day. She cried EVERY time...

Yout taught me everything
Everything you've given me
I'll always keep it inside 
You're the driving force in my life, yeah 

There isn't anything
Or anyone that I could be 
And it just wouldn't feel right 
If I didn't have you by my side 

You were there for me to love and care for me
When skies were gray 
Whenever I was down 
You were always there to comfort me 

And no one else can be
What you have been to me you will always be 
You will always be the girl 
In my life for all times 

Mama, Mama you know I love you
Mama, Mama you're the queen of my heart 
Your love is like tears from the stars 
Mama I just want you to know lovin' you is like food to my soul 
Yes it is, yes it is, oh, yes it is, yes it is, yes it is oh 

You're always there for me
Have always been around for me even when I was bad 
You showed me right from my wrong 
Yes you did 

And you took up for me
When everyone was downin' me 
You always did understand 
You gave me strength to go on 

There was so many times
Looking back when I was so afraid 
And then you come to me and say to me 
I can face anything 

And no one else can do
What you have done for me 
You'll always be, you will always be 
The girl in my life, ooh oh 

Mama, Mama you know I love you
Mama, Mama you're the queen of my heart 
Your love is like tears from the stars 
Mama I just want you to know lovin' you is like food to my soul 

Never gonna go a day without you
Fills me up just thinkin' about you 
I'll never go a day 
Without my mama 

Mama, Mama you know I love you
Mama, Mama you're the queen of my heart 
Your love is like tears from the stars 
Mama I just want you to know lovin' you is like food to my soul!

...now I cry every time I read or hear it.  Oh how I miss that wonderful lady!
