To My Beloved Mom n Dad

A Song For Mama - Boys 2 Men

You taught me everything
And everything you've given me

I always keep it inside

You're the driving force in my life

There isn't anything
Or anyone I can be
And it just wouldn't feel right
If I didn't have you by my side

You were there for me to love and care for me

When skies were grey

Whenever I was down
You were always there to comfort me
And no one else can be what you have been to me

You'll always be you always will be the girl

In my life for all times


Mama, mama you know I Love You

You know I love you Mama,
mama you're the queen of my heart

Your love is like
Tears from the stars
Mama, I just want you to know

Loving you is like food to my soul

You're always down for me

Have always been around for me even when I was bad

You showed me right from my wrong

Yes you did And you took up for me
When everyone was downing me

You always did understand

You gave me strength to go on

There was so many times

Looking back when I was so afraid

And then you come to me

And say to me I can face anything
And no one else can do
What you have done for me
You'll always be
You will always be the girl in my life


Dance With My Father - Luther Vandross

Back when I was a child,
before life removed all the innocence

My father would lift me up

And dance with my mother and me and then

Spin me around ‘til I fell asleep

Then up the stairs he would carry me

And I knew for sure I Was Loved

If I could get another chance,

another walk, another dance with him

I’d play a song that would never, ever end

How I’d love, love, love

To dance with my father again

When I and my mother would disagree

To get my way, I would run from her to him

He’d make me laugh just to comfort me

Then finally make me do just what my mama said

Later that night when I was asleep
He left a dollar under my sheet
Never dreamed that he would be gone from me

If I could steal one final glance,
one final step, one final dance with him

I’d play a song that would never, ever end
‘Cause I’d love, love, love

To dance with my father again


Sometimes I’d listen outside her door

And I’d hear how mama would cry for him

I prayed for her even more than me
I prayed for her even more than me

I know I’m praying for much too much
But could you send back the only man she loved
I know you don’t do it usually
But dear Lord she’s dying

To dance with my father again
Every night I fall asleep
and this is all I ever dreamed
