A Special Day Above All Others

I wrote this one for Mom on Mother’s Day, 1996; it still applies today. Some things never change.

A Special Day Above All Others

 –

I suppose you think I can write a poem

For every holiday that comes along

For every birthday and special occasion

You think I can write another song

 –

Well, let me set the record straight

I can’t write stuff for just anyone

The words come from my heart

And these are to a mother from her son

 –

I’ve written things for you before

I’ve told of days gone by

I’ve talked of times we’ve laughed

And I’ve mentioned times we’ve cried

 –

We’ve been through lots together

And we’ve spent some time apart

But you’ve always been a part of me

And you’ll always be in my heart

 –

There will never be another like you

I’m so lucky that I was blessed

With a mom so beautiful and special

Yes, God gave me the very best

 –

So, on this day that’s been set aside

To honor mothers everywhere

I thought it was only fitting

I write these words of how much I care

 –

I plan to write lots of words for you

There’s many things I want to say

But there’s no way I can say them all now

They won’t fit on just one page

 –

Yes, this is a day when the words freely flow

A special day above all others

A day that’s been set aside to say

You’re the greatest! I love you Mother!
