I wrote this for my now 92-year-old Mom just after moving to Gardnerville, Nevada.

I'll Be There For You

I'll be there for you like you were for me.
Though winter nights be long and chilly,
You won't be lonely.
I'll be there for you when you're old and need
Someone to care and family too,
I'll be there for you.

My life as your child was such a joy.
You loved and raised so well this boy.
I always could depend on you to tuck me in.
At naptime you read to me too.

Your love constant as sunshine it was.
It shines out from my heart, yes now it does.
When fears put me in a spin into your harbor I sail in.
The best refuge for me I find in you. I’ll be there for you.


The kids grew up and flew as children do.
Then shock of sudden death took Papa too.
I stayed on for awhile, sold the house and helped you smile,
Moved you on five hundred miles too.

Now that you're getting old and slowing down,
I'm finding that I want to be around.
Now it is my turn to give. I don't know how we will live but
There will be no old folks' home for you,
  ‘cause I'll be there for you.
I'll be there for you.

I’ll be there for you.
