You Raised Me Up

A photo of a woman and two children.

To my mother, Ms. Alice Morrow:

You showed me that I had a will.
Alice, you showed me that I had a will and
I way to succeed in life.
Yes Mother! You helped me search and
Discover a better way of life.
You had a positive heart,
That you passed on to me.
You raised me beyond
Government assistance and poverty.
Yes, you gave me the will to succeed
In Life and respect others based
On their deeds and not their color.
When times were dim,
I heard you say, keep the faith.
Where there is a will
There is a way.
I love you for all the things that
You have given me in this life.
Your love most of all,
Your son, Mr. Morrow.
