    Hi Kevin,

    So sorry to hear about your mum. My heart goes out to you. I don't know a song specifically from son to mom, but here is one from daughter to mom that you might appreciate anyway.

    Also, I have seen other "funeral" threads, you might try searching for "funeral." Or "mother-son wedding songs" might turn up some appropriate songs.

    I am partial to a song called "I Grieve" by Peter Gabriel - I posted the lyrics in another funeral thread, but it is better to listen to the song if you have a chance.

    Best wishes.

    Carly Simon - Like A River Lyrics

    (Carly Simon)
    Dear mother the struggle is over now
    And your house is up for sale
    We divided your railway watches
    Between the four of us
    I fought over the pearls
    With the other girls
    But it was all a metaphor
    For what was wrong with us
    As the room is emptying out
    Your face so young comes into view
    And on the back porch is a well-worn step
    And a pool of light you can walk into

    I'll wait no more for you like a daughter,
    That part of our life together is over
    But I will wait for you, forever
    Like a river...

    Can you clear up the mystery of the Sphinx?
    Do you know any more about God?
    Are you dancing with Benjamin Franklin
    On the face of the moon?
    Have you reconciled with Dad?
    Does the rain still make you sad?
    Last night I swear I could feel you
    Moving through my room
    And I thought you touched my feet
    I so wanted it to be true
    In my theater there is a stage
    And a footlight you can step into...

    I'll wait no more for you like a daughter,
    That part of our life together is over
    But I will wait for you, forever
    Like a river...

    In the river I know I will find the key
    And your voice will rise like the spray
    In the moment of knowing
    The tide will wash away my doubt
    'Cause you're already home
    Making it nice for when I come home
    Like the way I find my bed turned down
    Coming in from a late night out.
    Please keep reminding me
    Of what in my soul I know is true

    Come in my boat, there's a seat beside me
    And two or three stars we can gaze into...

    I'll wait no more for you like a daughter,
    That part of our life together is over
    But I will wait for you forever
    Like a river...

    I'll never leave, always just a dream away
    A star that's always watching
    Never turn away
    We'll never leave, always just a thought away
    A candle always burning
    Never turn away
    The moon will hide, the tree will bend
    I'm right beside you
    I'll never turn away

    Kevin
    My sincerest condolences....know this doesn't help now but @ my Mom's funeral we played "Wind beneath My wings" by Bette Midler. Beaches was Mom's favorite movie. And the Laurie White tune How Do I Live without you.
    For anyone who maybe faced with that delimma in the future.
    It's not easy my thoughts are with you.

    Default mama Il Divo

    heya really sorry to hear about your loss, what about mama by il divo, the lyrics are as follows:

    Mama, thank you for who I am
    Thank you for all the things I'm not
    Forgive me for the words unsaid
    For the times I forgot

    Mama remember all my life
    You showed me love, you sacrificed
    Think of those young and early days
    How I've changed along the way [along the way]

    And I know you believed
    And I know you had dreams
    And I'm sorry it took all this time to see
    That I am where I am because of your truth
    And I miss you, yeah I miss you

    Mama forgive the times you cried
    Forgive me for not making right
    All of the storms I may have caused
    And I've been wrong, Dry your eyes [dry your eyes]

    Cause I know you believed
    And I know you had dreams
    And I'm sorry it took all this time to see
    That I am where I am because of your truth

    And I miss you, I miss you

    Mama I hope this makes you smile
    I hope you're happy with my life
    At peace with every choice I made
    How I've changed along the way [along the way]

    Cause I know you believed in all of my dreams
    And I owe it all to you, Mama



    Ita a really beautiful song. I brought it for my mum for mothers day, and she said it was one of the nicest songs she had ever heard....hope the day goes ok for you

    Default funeral song

    My nanna passed away in april 2007 and my mum and her brothers and sisters chose this song to be played at her funeral.

    Celine Dion - Goodbyes The Saddest Word.

    Mamma
    You gave life to me
    Turned a baby into a lady
    and
    Mamma
    All you had to offer
    Was the promise of a lifetime of love

    Now I know
    There is no other
    Love like a mother's love for her child

    And I know
    A love so complete
    Someday must leave
    Must say goodbye

    Goodbye's the saddest word I'll ever hear
    Goodbye's the last time I will hold you near
    Someday you'll say that word and I will cry
    It'll break my heart to hear you say goodbye

    Mamma
    You gave love to me
    Turned a young one into a woman
    and
    Mamma
    All I ever needed
    Was a guarantee of you loving me

    'Cause I know
    There is no other
    Love like a mother's love for her child

    And it hurts so
    That something so strong
    Someday will be gone, must say goodbye

    Goodbye's the saddest word I'll ever hear
    Goodbye's the last time I will hold you near
    Someday you'll say that word and I will cry
    It'll break my heart to hear you say goodbye

    But the love you gave me will always live
    You'll always be there every time I call
    You offered me the greatest love of all
    You take my weakness and you make me strong
    And I will always love you 'til forever comes

    And when you need me
    I'll be there for you all the way
    I'll be there all life through
    I'll be there this I guarantee

    Mamma, I'll be
    I'll be there through the darkest nights
    I'll be the wings that guide your broken flight
    I'll be your shelter through the raging storm
    And I will love you 'till forever comes

    Goodbye's the saddest word I'll ever hear
    Goodbye's the last time I will hold you near
    Someday you'll say that word and I will cry
    It'll break my heart to hear you say goodbye

    'Till we meet again...
    Until then...
    Goodbye

    I hope this helps.x

    Smile Song for any Mothers

    I thought some of the members here may be interested in this Beautiful song about Mothers.
    Tui Teka "Mum"
    Tui Teka is the singer, and he himself has now passed away.
    It is an absolutely beautiful song that will make you cry for sure.
    I hope someone goes to utube and has a look. And if you look around you will find the video of him singing it live to his own Mother.
    All the best to everyone,
    DollyAU

    My mother told me that she wants us to play Yesterday by the Beatles at her funeral. It may not fit the description of a son showing remorse for his mother, but it definitely signifies loss.

    Default What Earth lost yesterday, Heaven Gained

    I had a special friend to sing this for my Mother when she passed away. I don't know who the origional singer is, but it is so beautiful.
    It starts out by entering and signing into the Funeral palor on the book. Three songs were played as she requested. He gave his condolences to the family.
    (I am only telling you about the song)
    She never had earthly treasures, she didn't want them.
    Just to provide for her family, Nothing more.
    She often talked about her home in Heaven,
    That she had been so longing for,
    So look what's happening in Heaven -
    A cheer went up as she walked through the gate.
    And just look who has his arm around her- And he just wiped the last tear from her eyes,
    He said Child come on home Forever, Come and rest by the River of Life. He said CHILD, Come on home forever, Come and rest by the River of LIFE>

    I don't know all the words or the origional singer and would appreciate anyone letting me know where I could find it.
    Thank you so much. This is a beautiful song.
