Losing A Mother


Even when you know someone is going to die
It still hurts so very much
Especially when it's someone
Your whole life they have touched

For as long as I can remember
She was always there
Every day of my life
She showed how much she cared

Death is something we all face
It's one thing in life that's for sure
She was always there to guide me
She always made me feel secure

But now the time has come
For me to say goodbye
The pain in my heart
Will be seen by the tears in my eyes

I know it's all right to morn the loss
Of someone who gave me everything
I'll now sit back and remember
The way my life with her had been

I'll think of her each and every day
No matter where I'll be
For she is the reason I am
As she's the one who gave birth to me

So I'll cry, I'll be sad but thankful
Remembering all the good times we got to share
It will make me happy because I will know
That she knew, just how much I cared

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
