Just as the sun was beginning it’s decent to the west.
I stood quite still, overcome with grief
Shocked and in complete disbelief
Holding onto her ashes I thought to myself, how can my mother be gone?
Her life was not meant to be over, don’t you see, this is all wrong.
She was so kind and gentle, so loving and true
Always cheering me up, when I was feeling blue
As I grew older she was constantly there
A silent presence who really cared
This can’t be happening I scream inside,
I still need her, she is my beautiful life guide.
No one is listening don’t they see
This is not how it was supposed to be
I didn’t want my mother to die, not yet, not now
We were not finished
My mother and I
We had dreams and plans and things to do
Now they are dead, gone with you
Losing you has left a big hole in my heart
You were my Mummy, my special one
You loved me and cared for me and held me when I cried
My life has changed now that you have died
I shall miss you forever, every night and every day
My life is not the same now that you have gone away
Goodbye Mummy, God speed
Fly with the angels and pay us no heed
I hope you are happy and in no more pain
I hope you are running in meadows and laughing again
It may not be soon
but I’ll see you again one day
we’ll laugh and we’ll cry and together we’ll play
