BOND NEVER BROKEN - A SONG FOR MOTHERS

MUSIC AND LYRICS: RICHARD HOLLEY

INTRO
BOND NEVER BROKEN, MOTHER FOR CHILD.

VERSE 1
SHE WORRIED FOR YOU, BEFORE YOU WERE BORN.
SHE CARED FOR YOU, FROM YOUR VERY FIRST MORN.
SHE HELD YOU UP TO GOD, TO PRAY THAT ALL YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE.
SHE PROMISED DEEP WITHIN HER HEART, TO DO HER VERY BEST FOR YOU.

VERSE 2
WISDOM SHE SHARED, TAUGHT YOU TO UNDERSTAND,
THAT PATIENCE IS A BLESSING, AS IS GIVING A HELPING HAND.
SHE SEES THAT YOU GREW STRONG, AND THAT ALL YOUR DREAMS HAVE COME TRUE.
SHE KEPT HER PROMISE EVERY DAY, TO DO HER VERY BEST FOR YOU.

BRIDGE
AS THE YEARS GO BY, AND YOUR MOTHER’S GETTING OLDER
YOU SEE ALL HER CHRONIC ACHES AND PAINS.
SHE ASKS IF SHE CAN LEAN UPON YOUR SHOULDER.
SO SHE DOESN’T HAVE TO STRUGGLE WITH HER CANES.

CHORUS
HEART ALWAYS OPEN, MOTHER FOR CHILD.
THOUGH THE WORLD IS HARD, HER WAYS ARE MILD.
SHE SMILES ON YOU ALWAYS, YOU’RE HER OWN SWEET CHILD.
BOND NEVER BROKEN, MOTHER FOR CHILD.

VERSE
TIME MARCHES ON; HER STRENGTH GIVES OUT;
HER HEART’S GROWN WEAK; THE DOCTORS RAISE DOUBT.
YOU TAKE HER HAND IN YOURS, AND HOPE THAT ALL HER DREAMS CAME TRUE.
MOTHER, YOU’VE DONE IT ALL FOR US, IS THERE SOMETHING WE CAN DO FOR YOU?

BRIDGE
AND THEN ONE DAY SHE’S GONE, AND THAT BOND IS BROKEN.
BUT THE LOVE SHE GAVE TO YOU, IT NEVER DIES.
SURVIVING TIME AND SPACE, SUCH AMAZING GRACE,
TO HAVE FELT THE GENTLE LOVE IN HER EYES.

CHORUS
BOND NEVER BROKEN, MOTHER FOR CHILD.
THOUGH THE WORLD RUSHES ON, SHE IS WITH YOU ALL THE WHILE.
SHE CARES FOR YOU ALWAYS, YOU’RE HER OWN SWEET CHILD.
BOND NEVER BROKEN, MOTHER FOR CHILD.
