Thinking of You

I thought I'd lost you there for a while
I thought I'd just die not seeing your smile
Never quite knowing just what to do
But I do know I'll never stop thinking of you
As I sit here passing the time away
Thinking of you as I do each day
Missing your smile and sweet, loving face
Knowing that no one could take your place
In your heart you can be sure it's true
I spend day and night thinking of you
I love you more than I might have shown
But prayed someday you would see
Your unconditional love I have known
is what made me who I've wanted to be
All the things you have done and the nights you stayed awake
to make it better when it was wrong, you did it for my sake
God gave me the dearest mother and whether I am near or far
I will always cherish you Mom, love is what you are!
I will never be sad, unhappy or blue
When I spend every moment thinking of you

Your Loving Daughter
