You couldnít always be there,
when I skinned my knee,
to dust me off and kiss my cheek.
There was money to be earned,
and groceries to be bought,
and other children who needed you.

You couldnít always be there,
when a young man broke my heart
to wipe my tears and hold my hand.
There were piles of laundry
and casseroles to prepare
and many friends who needed you.

But as the years have gone by,
Iíve become my own woman
and the cuts have gotten deeper.
There are reports to be written
and dirty dishes waiting in the sink
and a teenage boy who now needs me.

And still, you canít always be here
when I have decisions to make
to know whatís right and choose for me
There are hundreds of miles between us
and days and weeks that pass by
and many people who now need us.

But I hear your voice across the miles
when you listen to my latest grief
and gently remind me of who I am.
I can now understand and clearly see
that right here, by my side,
is where you have always been.
