On My Mind

Mom - you taught me I could be anything I wanted, that I could make any dream come true. Through your example I learned the importance of dedication, of taking responsibility, and thinking of the feelings of others before yourself. Without you, I'd be nothing.

I won't be with you today, but I'll be thinking of you. In your honor, from one of my favorites, Jeff Buckley, "Mama, You Been on My Mind"

Perhaps it's the color of the sun cut flat
An' cov'rin' the crossroads I'm standing at,
Or maybe it's the weather or something like that,
But mama, you been on my mind.

When you wake up in the mornin' and look inside your mirror,
You know I won't be next to you, no, I won't be near.
I'd just be curious to know if you can see yourself as clear
As someone who has had you on his mind.

I hope you can see yourself the way we see you, as the woman who gave us the best of herself and showed us through example how to be strong, resourceful and loving. I love you. Pin It
