Mother and Son Songs-Love Him Forever

Mother and Son Songs - Love Him Forever
May 9, 2019

Barbette Records
Producer: Deanne Matley

One of the best mother and son songs! Love Him Forever was inspired by Deanne’s experiences as an in-demand wedding performer, and her realization that there are plenty of songs to choose from when it comes to Father-Daughter dances, but few that highlight the special relationship between Mother and Son.

This emotional piece, co-written with Jon Day, is broken down into three elements – a mother’s internal conversation with her soon to be daughter-in-law, her self-reflection on how much her son means to her, and finally, a conversation with her son to remind him of all the things she has taught him about the meaning of love.

The perfect mother-son dance song!  One that has now been performed live at multiple weddings and each time has brought the room to tears.

“The deep connection between a mother and son is something I may never experience, but I will always feel it.” – Deanne Matley


I see the lightness when he is with you.
His loving hands caress your arms so gently
And I know that now you make him happy
Please love him forever

He is the one who
keeps me smiling
His tender heart surrounds my soul completely
And I know that now
He’ll share that with you
Please love him forever

So take good care of him my baby boy
He’s no longer mine to hold
Love him every day
and trust he loves you deep in every way

I’ll love you always
my son of mine
I am so proud of you and all your blessings
And I see that now
She is your best friend
Please love her forever.
