I took a drive along a lonely,
To see my Mom, I’m melancholy to be going back
Memory speaks of a table full of goodies~~~tried
Fresh coffee, hugs and kisses, and a lot of
I LOVE YOU.
So much I had to tell her, so much wisdom
My new career and changes in my life had
Looking into her eyes, I realize the pain I’ve
put her through,
And yet she greets me with a sigh, “Oh Baby,
I Love You.”
“Come rest a spell, and tell me all that you
Did getting far away from home bring all for
which you yearned?”
“Are you happy, Baby, do you feel “Really
“Can you, in your heart-of-hearts say “You have
done your best”?
“Have you found a man you truly Love.
And does he realize,
The joy of sharing with you
Passion that touches the skies?”
“My only wish has always been your happiness,
I’ve prayed that you have been Truly Blessed
With someone to grow old with
Who will stand time’s awesome test.’
“Oh Mom”, I said, “I’ve tried so hard to make
you proud of me.
I’ve made some mistakes, but all in all,
I’m happy, don’t you see.
I wish we’d had this talk, Mom, before
God took you away.
I made this trip home to see you Mom,
Because it’s Mother’s Day”.
Brushing off her stone, slowly I turn to walk
I guess that I have said all that I came to say.
I turn my car back along that lovely lonely
And as I go, I’m humming Mom’s sweet refrain.
