I Love You Mama!
We must live through the worry winter,
If we should value the spring
The woods are cold and silent before the robin sings.
Though flowers are buried in the darkness before it can bud and bloom
The sweet and warmest sunshine, comes after the storm and gloom
So the heart from the hardest trials, gain the purest joy of all
And from the lips that has faced saddest,
Mama the sweetest songs will fall…
I Love You Mama, by Jody
