FLOWERS FOR MAMA
WRITERS EDDIE NOACK, CINDY WALKER, AL RUMLEY
Papa brought flowers for mama today
And all the grown children, but it`s not mother`s day
I don`t have no money, not even a dime
But I brought mama flowers like I have all the time.
Everyday I pick flowers from this pretty hill
A small box of Daisies and a few Daffodils
I bring them to mama at the end of the day
And say flowers for mama, here`s mama`s bouquet.
They brighten her face and she holds me close
She`d say they are more precious than a beautiful rose
And she wore a smile sweeter than millions of flowers
A smile that I`ll carry through life's darkest hours.
Now mama was lying there, yes, they tell me she passed away
And she was surrounded by flowers that out-shined my bouquet
I know mine aren`t fancy but still all the while
They were placed in her hand and I know I saw mama smile.
Flowers for mama I picked them today
Not very much, just a simple bouquet
Mom wasn`t so fancy but up there above
She`s the prettiest flower in God`s garden of love.
