My mommy was not much
She only had a high school education
With her life touch
She bought my propagation

I miss her so
Now I am crying
Think she will know
When I am dying

That she will bring
Her love to me
And softly sing
With those red lips I see

Here in my dreams I have sometimes
Awaking after she screams no
An angel of divine
That I scream back I love you so

Now I wear the red lipstick
Now I have the kids and grand-girls and grand-boys
Now I have to be quick
Now I have no noise

So quiet when your babies grow
Their little smiles grow big white teeth
When all you really long to know
Is how it was when they were beneath

Held fast in your arms
Sucking milk from your breast
Full of a babies sweet charms
Please love your mommy best

She gave her life
To grow you strong
She was a mother-wife
Who will not last long

Enough for the lap that once held you
Or the face that kissed away your tears
If when she leaves you love her true
She calls in dreams still after 31 years

Of being gone
Of being dead
O my sweet mom
Still in my head

Though you grow up and leave home
To think you will do better still
The roads are traveled here alone
Except in dreams where mommy you feel

As close to you
As the day you were born
A mother's love
Will outlast every kind of worldly storm

Remember that this Mothers' Day
Remember when she was your everything
Look up to where angels' play
Let her love fall down as singing rain

I love you, mommy, Betty Jean Anderson
Love you, mommy, o I do
I love you, mommy, you have won
Love you, mommy, all this life through.
