"MY MOTHER, MY SPECIAL FRIEND"

Verse 1
From the time I can remember you,
You had a smile to share.
It seemed that there wasn't anything that you couldn't bear.
You'd always pray a prayer
That the arms of Heaven would care for me,
And that I would be all I could be.

Chorus
You've always been there,
No matter what I've gone through.
You've given your life and care;
I've always felt that love from you.
You've always been there
Through your tears and prayers.
You've always cared, you've always shared,
My mother, my special friend. -

Verse 2
Mom, I wish there was a way that I,
Oh, that I could pay you back
For all the times that you were there for me,
Caring endlessly
Through those long nights of a mother's life;
And it amazes me how you saw the best in me.

Chorus
You've always been there,
Whatever I've gone through.
You've given your life and care;
I've always felt that love from you.
You've always been there
Through your tears and prayers.
You've always cared, you've always shared,
My mother, my special friend. -

Bridge
And wherever I go, and whatever I do
There will always be a special place for you
There won't be a day that goes by
That I won't think of you.

Chorus
You've always been there
Whatever I've gone through
You've given your life and care
I've always, felt that love from you.
You've always been there
Through your tears and prayers.
You've always cared, you've always shared,
My mother, my special friend.

Last Chorus
[No matter what I've gone through,]
You've always been there for me.
[You've given your life and care,]
You've always cared,
[I've always], I've always felt that love from you.
You've always been there [Mom, I thank you.]
Through your tears and prayers.
[God heard your prayers.]
You've always cared, you've always shared,
My mother, my special friend. -

You've always been there.
