~~OH MOTHER~~

By Jermaine Jackson & Elliot Willensky
Taken from Jermaine Jackson's
Dynamite album

Have I told you
You are My river

That never stops for a rest
Have I thanked you
For letting me
Come out of you
And giving me all of your best

Have I thanked you
For having our family,
Without them
I wouldn't be here

Have I told you
No matter
How far I may go
All of you always are near

CHORUS
Oh, Mother
You've given everything to me
Oh, Mother
You never asked for anything
Oh, Mother
I'm sorry for all those times
I've hurt you so,
When all along it was really me,
scared of letting go,
So afraid to grow

Have I told you
I love you forever
Have I told you
I love you always

Have I told you
The difference you make in my life
You make in your own special way

CHORUS
Oh, Mother
You've given everything to me
Oh, Mother
You never asked for anything
Oh, Mother
Have I told you
That I love you,
Have I told you today


~~SHE NEVER CRIED~~

By Marlon Jackson & F. Maye
Taken from Marlon Jackson's Baby Tonight album

I remember when I was young
You used to hold me in your arms
You always told me whatever I do
Have love for your father he's a part of you
Even though he left us alone
How can your heart speak so strong

You deserve much more
You're not the lady next door
Why does she have so much pride
She never cried
What can I do
He walked out on you
Everyday I cry
I feel the pain you hide
The voice of light
Will shine some night
And that's the day
That hurt will go away

To raise a kid, while still in school
l'll always respect you
You worked two jobs it carried us through
l'm sorry for the pain he caused you

What he expected you
To do with your life
You were young
Running out on you
With his child
That was wrong
How can he live
Not knowing we're alive
Where is my father
In this world I cried
You deserve much more
You're not the lady next door
Why does she have so much pride
She never cried
What can I do
He walked out on you
Everyday I cry
I feel the pain you hide
The voice of light
Will shine some night
And that's the day
That hurt will go away

I saw my father walking
down the street
I stopped and stared
Mom turned her head I said

You left us all alone
You never did come home
Stop don't turn away
l've been waiting for this day
To tell you how feel
Everyday regret that I
Was born into this world
Because of me her heart is lonely
She sat all alone
Hoping that you would phone
Never once she put you down
Responsibility you should have faced
Instead you ran away
Leaving us astray
Not once did you try
You're less than a man inside

You deserve much more
You're not the lady next door
Why does she have so much pride
She never cried
What can I do
He walked out on you
Everyday I cry
I feel the pain you hide
The voice of light
Will shine some night
And that's the day
That hurt will go away


~~MOTHER~~

Poem by Michael Jackson
Taken from Michael Jackson's "Dancing The Dream" book

Econs of time I've been gestating
From the unmanifets this cosmic conception
Oh this earth a fantastic reception
And then one fateful August morn
From your being I was born
With tender love you nurtured a seed
To your own distress you paid no heed
Unmindful of any risk and danger
You decided upon this lonely stranger

Rainbows, clouds, the deep blue sky
Glittering birds that fly on high
Out of fragments you've made my whole
From the elements you fashioned my soul
Mother dear, you gave me life
Because of you, no struggle or strife
You ave me joy and position
Cared for me without condition
And if I ever change this world
It's from the emotions you've unfurled
Your compassion is so sweet and dear
Your finest feelings I can hear
I can sense your faintest notion
The wondrous magic of your love potion

And now that I have come so far
Met with every kind and czar
Encountered every color and creed
Of every passion, every greed
I go back to that starry night
With not a fear for muscle or might
You taught me how to stand and fight
For every single wrong and right
Every day without a hold
I will treasure what you've mold
I will remember every kiss
Your sweet words I'll never miss
No matter where I go from here
You're in my heart, my mother dear.
