Song Description

A song for your mom.


Four years old with dirt on my face,

I'd been out in the yard pickin' dandelions all day.

I burst through the front door when I'd gathered enough

to give to my Mom to show her my love.

When I held out my hands, she looked down at me

and said "I've never seen flowers as beautiful as these"


She's the one who told me about Jesus.

She's the one who taught me to sing.

She deserves an armful of roses,

But she's satisfied with a handful of weeds

(ending tag) O, she's more than satisfied with a handful of weeds

Now that I'm older and out on my own,

I wish I could find more time to make it back home.

I could've done better I know in my heart

than to scribble a note on a last minute card.

But then she calls on the phone and the first thing she says

is "I've read this card over and over again."

(repeat chorus)


She's always known what true love means

and I want her to know what she means to me.

(repeat chorus)
