Every Day Should be Mother's Day

Every Day Should be Mother's Day

He never really had my love,
but he's always had my respect.
His alimony in the mail,
inherited a monthly check.

I'm written somewhere in his will
in every month he's died upon
My dad's alive, but still
my father was always gone.

I'm looking for a Father's Day card for Mom.

Now I've seen it on the TV screen,
but houses were beyond our arms.
Somewhere out beyond our reach,
but apartments still kept us warm.

And I've always had a lot of fun.
I never kept the TV on.
Playing outside with Mom,
although we never really had a lawn.

I'm looking for a Father's Day card for Mom.

Breakfast in the morning light.
Smiles - though it's probably hard.
I never knew she'd woken up
far beyond the morning dawn.

There's a man on the front - he's white,
but the stores never have my card.
Not a word do I ever write
'cause she knows who it's to and from.

I'm buying a Father's Day card for Mom.


For all the single mothers out there,
with much respect and consideration
to all the single fathers
and even to all the parents
who are still together.
