Her son, her son
The missing one
Where's all the love you used to show
How much she misses it, you'll never know.
The memory of those tear-filled eyes
The day they said their sad good-byes
Still haunts her every day and night
But don't worry, honey, that's all right
'Cause those memories will be erased
The day she sees your smiling face
Come walking through her kitchen door
With that big ole grin you always wore
Saying, "Hi you, Mom, how ya been?"
Oh Lord, those tears will fall again
Only this time, they'll be for joy
'Cause she'll finally get to see her boy.
