How well I remember the days of the past,
The happiness and laughter I knew couldn't last;
All good things must end, they say,
On the nineteenth of January it happened that way.

The new year just started, the nights dark and cold,
The glow in her eyes and her face growing old;
Her body grew weaker as time it passed on,
In no time at all, dear Mother was gone.

Please, God, take care of dear Mother for me,
She rests there in Heaven till eternity;
And to be free from all sorrow and pain,
And someday, please God, sure we'll meet again.

Please, God, if you could, give her one for me,
A cell phone to call home from eternity;
Tell her to call me just one more time,
That beautiful angel, that Mother of mine.

I can see her now sitting 'round God's throne,
Surrounded by angels she'll be never alone,
Praying for loved ones that she left back home,
The only thing missing is the old telephone.

Please, God, take care of dear Mother for me,
She rests there in Heaven till eternity;
And to be free from all sorrow and pain,
And someday, please God, sure we'll meet again.

My mind never thought this dream would come true,
You turn my grey skies from grey to blue;
The sun it shines brighter,
and the moon it shines through.
Ain't it amazing what an angel can do?

Please, God, take care of dear Mother for me,
She rests there in Heaven till eternity;
And to be free from all sorrow and pain,
And someday, please God, sure we'll meet again.
And someday, please God, sure we'll meet again.
