    I Will Pause and Think of You

    When Christmas comes and the tree shines bright
    and the children can't sleep on Christmas Eve night
    when the family is gathered for the traditional fare
    and we reminisce of years past and wish you were there
    I will pause and think of you.

    When Mother's Day comes and the flowers are in bloom
    and the sweet scent of roses fills the room
    when my children make me my tea and toast
    and ask me which present I love the most
    I will pause and think of you.

    When Sundays come round and I'm having a lie in
    and I'm wondering what pleasures my day will bring
    when my children jump all over me in bed
    and my morning paper doesn't get a chance to be read
    I will pause and think of you.

    When my telephone rings on a rainy day
    and I've got just about a hundred things to say
    when I want to share all my thoughts and views
    and talk about all things exciting and new
    I will pause and think of you.

    When a good friend pops in for some company
    and we're sitting enjoying a nice cup of tea
    when we talk of things silly and foolish and fun
    and we laugh so hard that the tears start to run
    I will pause and think of you.

    When I sit alone quietly to reflect on my life
    am I a good daughter, a good mother, a good wife
    when the answer lies so easily within my reach
    and I know it is because I had you to guide me, to teach
    Yes Mum, I will always think of you.
