This actually came from a real life incident where my husband was gone, and I was crying, and my step-son said to me, "Mom, I know why you're crying, it's cause Daddy's not here to tuck you in tonight!"
verse 1: When his daddy was out of town
My little man didn't know why
His big wide smile would turn upside down
And I'd say, "Son, I know why you are crying"
Daddy's not here to tuck you in tonight
And give those special hugs to you
It's not the same, but I hope I'll do
Mommies and Daddies are different it's true
Like the sun and moon way up above
But just remember I love you too
And you will always be loved
2. As he grew up and the years rolled by
He looks so very much like his dad
But I could still remember the nights that he cried
And I dried his tears and said
Lift: The time came when his dad was gone
And I gave up on trying
Till, my grownup little boy helped me carry on
And said, "Mom I know why you're crying . . ."
