  • I would never let a tear fall from your eyes,
    Cause everyting you are to me,I could never let you hurt inside,
    You mean so much and I'm so thankful that your in my life,
    And I appreciate your love and all sacrifice,
    Without you by my side,I never could survive,
    I wouldn't be the woman standing here before your eyes,
    You taught me strength and you gave me guidance,
    Whenever faith was lost you were there to find it,
    And all because a mother's love is unconditional,
    With all my heart and all my soul I want let you know.


    That I thank you and I love you and
    I will never place anyone above you,
    Said I thank you and I love you,
    And I could never ever place no one above you
    You have given me life and I just want you to know,
    That your the reason im here today I will never let go,
    To everything that we shared and nothing can compare
    I thank you, I thank you, I thank you is what im saying.

    See I've been blessed to be raised by a woman so strong,
    Cuz even when I did things wrong,
    You would show me just the way that I should carry on.
    You kept me safe and you protected me with all you had,
    And everytime I was in need you gave your very las
    Without you by my side, I never could survive,
    I wouldn't be the woman standing here before your eyes.
    You taught me strength and you gave me guidance whenever faith was lost you were there to find it.
    And all because a mothers love is unconditional,
    With all my heart and all my soul I wanna let you know.

    That I thank you and I love you and
    I will never place anyone above you,
    Said I thank you and I love you,
    And I never place no one above you
    You have given me life and I just want you to know,
    That your the reason im here today I will never let go,
    To everything that we shared and nothing can compare
    I thank you, I thank you, I thank you is what I'm saying.

    I remember waking up early Monday mornings,
    With my new dress and my new shoes, with the buckles on em
    And you would kiss my face and say I love you baby,
    And you would be right there to take all of my fear away.
    And when he broke my heart you said it was his lost,
    And not to think about about your better off with out him.
    Remember when they said that I was never gonna make it,
    You said it Shows and all you gotta do is go and take it.


    Said I thank you and I love you,
    And I will never ever place no one above you.
    Said I thank you and I love you,
    And I will never ever place no one above you.
    See you have given me life and I just want you to know,
    That your the reason I'm here today I will never let go,
    To everything that we shared and nothing can compare
    I thank you, I thank you, I thank you is what im saying. x2 Writer/s: ASHANTI S. DOUGLAS, KENNY BABYFACE EDMONDS
