Often I think of you
Your kind and gentle ways - your voice so soft and always full of praise
You raised me with your loving hands -- so much of you in who I am

That afternoon last fall you were suffering I know
In the end I had to let you go
Now I'm restless all the time those painful days stuck in my mind

And everything I see stirs sweet memories
Only moments ago you were watching me grow
Whenever life seemed gray how you'd always say
Look deep inside you'll find that patch of blue
I cry for me I cry for you
I cry for me I cry for you

That summer by the lake
When Daddy taught me how to swim
At night we'd tell stories then you'd tuck me in
Warm breeze through the screen porch door don't think I could have loved you more

Repeat Chorus

Whether I skinned my knee
Or bruised my heart
Mama I always turned to you

Repeat Chorus
