I Dearly Love My Momma,
But She Has the Saddest Eyes.
I Know She Still Misses Daddy
But She Will Not Say Good-bye
I Asked Her One Time to Tell Me
Where Had My Daddy Gone,
She Said He Had a War to Fight,
But He Wouldn't Be Gone That Long.
That Was Twenty Years Ago....
We Buried Her Today.
She Never Believed He Wouldn't Come Home,
I Cried a Tear as I Knelt to Pray.
Please, Dear God in Heaven,
Let Her Find Him There..
Then Her Eyes Won't Be So Sad,
Give Them Back the Love They Share.
His Name Is Listed on the Wall..
I'm Sure He Looks down from the Skies.
And I Hope That Momma Found Him
And the Sadness Has Left Her Eyes.
