Your water heater most likely needs a new thermocouple. (the device the pilot light heats to develope power to operate the gas valve). They are not expensive and usually available at good home improvement/hardware stores.
Bring your old thermocouple or as much information about your heater to the store to ensure you get the correct replacement.

the hot water tank may be filled with scale buildup on the inside. drain a few gallons out of tank until the water runs clear. it is best to drain out water heater at least 2 times a year.

Possible thermostat problem. Are you experienced enough in that area to do some testing. Have a multimeter? If not experienced, don't try it, too dangerous. Call in a service person.

SOURCE: Pilot will not relight properly
The thermocouple needs to be replaced. That is what keeps the pilot light lit. The thermocouple is the little metal probe that sticks up into the pilot flame. Very easy to replace.
