Verse #1
I remember when I was a little boy
And after the weather turned cool
How mama helped dress us, then made us breakfast
Kissed us and sent us to school
One day I reached with my mittens
To wipe all her kisses away
She happened to notice, then gently told us
Something I remembered today, she said

Chorus:
Don’t wipe away mama’s kisses
Just let them stay on your face
Cause there's so much love in mama's kisses
Not even time can erase

Verse #2
She told us a mother's love is special
And nothing could ever make that change
Though we might neglect her and even reject her
Her love would still be the same
And someday when we got older
Then we'd be able to see
For when we were grown and had kids of our own
We'd know the reason she said to me

(Repeat chorus)

Verse #3
Well, now the chapel is quiet
The rest of the family's gone home
I thought I would stay here and find a way here
To gather my thoughts all alone
I wish I'd told her I loved her
A million more times than I did
But I'll always remember that her love was tender
And what she told me when I was a kid

(Repeat chorus)
