Without You Where Would I Be

Wow!!! What can I say

To you on this special day

Cause without you where would I be

You take care of me like no other

Thank you for being my mother

When God gave us to you it was your test

As God called out the names

Willie, Larry, Shirley, LaVerne, Gregory, Jason, Stanley,

Arlene, Michael and Melvin

God knew that you would do your best

He knew by the smile on your face

The joy that a child would bring day by day

Thank you, mother for not giving up on this race

You are worth more than gold

And you grow more precious as you get old

These words have come from my heart

Cause you gave me my first start

With the love you gave me it will never depart

Cause without you where would I be
