Back in childhood days, I can remember loving caresses showered on me. Mother's eyes would gaze at me so tender, What was their meaning? Now I can see. One bright and guiding light, That taught me wrong from right, I found in my mother's eyes. Those baby tales she told, That road all paved in gold, I found in my mother's eyes. Just like a wandering sparrow, One lonely soul. I walked the straight and narrow, To reach my goal. God's gift sent from above, A real unselfish love, I found in my mother's eyes. When I'm all alone, no one around me, I find the future dark as can be. Sorrows I have known, always surround me, Then through the shadows, I always see. One bright and guiding light, That taught me wrong from right, I found in my mother's eyes. Those baby tales she told, That road all paved in gold, I found in my mother's eyes. Just like a wandering sparrow, One lonely soul. I walked the straight and narrow, To reach my goal. God's gift sent from above, A real unselfish love, I found in my mother's eyes.
