Treasure Island

Rene' Bennett

(Los Angelos, California)

Mother


Mother, I miss you. I still call your name.
Since you've been gone, I'm not the same.

Mother, I need you here with me
or me with you which has to be.

Mother, this pain goes so deep
I cry day and night and scream in my sleep.

Mother, please make it go away
Make it stop. Somehow, someway.

Mother, I'm sorry I cried a tear
yearning you, wish you were here.

Mother, come take my hand
guide me to that promise land.

Mother, yes, I long to be
asleep with you, eternally.
