A MOTHER LIKE YOU
JJ Heller


You gave me a drawer in your kitchen
You gave me the room with a view of the yard
Whatever the hurt, you knew right where to kiss it
You gave me the best of your heart

And you carried my rocks in your pocket
Flowers and feathers and butterfly wings
You had an answer for all of my questions
You showed me wonderful things

I know that it hasn't been easy
I hope that I love like you do
'Cause I know that this world would be better
If everyone had a mother like you

You make the best macaroni
We never cared that it came from a box
The mom in the stands always clapping her hands
Started cheering and still haven't stopped

And you held me when I came home crying
'Cause someone said something that just wasn't true
I always said that Janelle was my best friend
But really it's always been you

I know that I haven't been easy
I hope that I love like you do
'Cause I know that this world would be better
If everyone had a mother like you
Mother like you

Our second was born in September
I still can't believe I have kids of my own
I look in their eyes and I can't help but wonder
Who will they be when they're grown?

I know it won't always be easy
I hope I can love like you do
'Cause I know that my kids will be better
If they have a mother like you
If I am a mother like you
'Cause I had a mother like you
