She said my son I beg of you I have a wish that must come true The last thing you can do For mama Please promise me that you will stay And take my place while I'm away And give the children love each day I had to cry what could I say? How hard I tried to find the words I prayed she would not see me cry So much to say that should be heard But only time to say goodbye to mama They say in time that you will forget Yet still today my eyes are wet I tell myself to smile for Mama Now soon there'll be another spring And I will start remembering The way she loved to hear us sing Her favourite song 'Ave Maria' Ave Maria The children all have grown up now I kept my promise to mama I cannot guide them anymore I've done my best all for mama Ave Maria Still this seems so very small For all She did for me
