Goodbye’s The Saddest Word

                                             written by R.J.Lange

                        Mamma, you gave life to me

                        Turned a baby into a lady

                        And Mamma all you had to offer

                        Was a promise of a lifetime of love.

                        Now I know there is no other love like

                        A mother’s love for her child.

                        I know that love so complete someday must leave

                        Must say goodbye.

                       

                        Goodbye’s the saddest word I’ll ever hear

                        Goodbye’s the last time I will hold you near

                        Someday you’ll say that word and I will cry

                        It will break my heart to hear you say goodbye.

 

                        Mamma you gave love to me

                        Turned a young one into a woman

                        And Mamma all I never needed

                        Was a guarantee of you loving me

                        Because I know there is no other love like

                        A mother’s love for her child.

                        And it hurts so that something so strong

                        Someday’ll be gone

                        Must say goodbye.

 

                        But the Love you give will always live

                        You’ll always be there every time I fall

                        You take my weakness and you make me strong

                        And I will always love you till forever comes.

And when you need me

                        I’ll be there for you always

                        I’ll be there this I promise you, Mamma

                        I’ll be your beacon through the darkest night

                        I’ll be the wings that guide your broken flight

                        I’ll be your shelter through the raging storm

                        And I will love you still forever comes.

 

                        Goodbye’s the saddest word I’ll ever hear

                        Goodbye’s the last time I will hold you near

                        Someday you’ll say that word and I will cry

                        I’ll break my heart to hear you say goodbye

                        Till we meet again until then goodbye.
