She held the future in her arms
the day that I was born.
And she shared the wisdom of her years
even after I was grown.
She was always there for me to call
on Sundays, I could depend.
She always had nice clothes to give
or a romance book to lend.
All my life I’ve felt her love
it’s made my heart secure.
And I see her more and more each day
when I look into the mirror.
