Mother, sweet mother,
why did you leave?
You were my everything,
you were my queen.

My selfish desire to not despair,
lost without you mommy, I'm so scared.

Time moves slowly, my worst nightmare is here,
reality is altered, mind scattered and I falter.
Screaming.NO, No, no! ! My mom is dead! ! I wanted to give up, feel no pain, and thought of firing a gun at my head.
The call, those words, fear filled minds eye...nightmares awake and staring in the cold darkness of ones crying bed.

My mother was always so strong and brave,
and ready to see beyond a place unknown. With the most beautiful wings and up you have flown, and all the ones left behind, feel so alone. We wept as we looked down upon your grave.
And all of your children will never be the same.

You let your soul fly free,
past the moon and stars.
And we know that you are watching us, from afar.

Now, you can see the beauty of heaven,
without any pain, and with daddy again.
You are at peace and until we meet,
I will stand tall on my own two feet.

Everything I see, think and feel, now....
will not be for granted, and someday I'll be fine.
Because of you mom, I am so strong and so brave.
You will always be my queen, so beautiful, so divine.
And mommy I will miss you all of my life time.

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
