I've always counted on you to be there for me, and you always were.
I've counted on you to tell me right from wrong when I wasn't sure.

I would come to you when I thought I didn't have a friend in this world.
I guess if I were an oyster, you would be my shining pearl.

Whenever I was hurting, I could always count on you to ease my pain.
I've came to you with so many problems, yet you've never complained.

I know times have changed and we talk less and less each day.
But though our mouths don't speak, our hearts have much to say.

I've come to you with broken heart, bad dreams and all,
And you made realize that you will always be there to catch me if I fall.

I'm so glad to have you in my life when things go wrong
Because I know when I talk to you that my problem will not last long.

You've been a mother to me as well as my best friend throughout the years.
When I had nightmares, you were there beside me to chase away my fears.

When I was sick, you were always there next to my bedside.
You gave me strength to hold on when I thought I was going to die.

I guess I never realized how much having you in my life really meant.
Out of all the moms I could have had, I'm glad it was you whom God sent.
