Mike Settle

When I was a little boy, my mother said to me, "Watch the new born roses grow. It's a pretty sight to see.
You, my son, shall blossom as the flower below. I will be your raindrops. You will be my rose.

Listen while I tell you of the beauty in the sky. There's a home for angels on the clouds so high.
I must be an angel. In heaven I shall stay. If you ever need me, I'll hear each word you say."

Now her raindrops fall no more. Who will take her place? Will I live to blossom full or wither into space?
Many times I wonder on the clouds above is it my dear mother who showers me with love?

When I was a little boy.

    I had forgotten this song, but when i was a little boy i used up play it over and over again. Now that both my mother and nick reynolds (the singer on this song) have gone to the other side, this song means even more now than then. Simply beautiful!
