“Let me be lighter, tired of being a fighter”…

~

You saw those familiar eyes…

On a passing strangers face…

Reminded you of another time…

Took you back to a loving place…

Back to when you were younger…

And those free and innocent days…

When a mother’s love surrounded you…

Protecting you in so many different ways…

You miss her every single day…

Easy to see it in your eyes…

Nothing could ever begin to replace her…

The memories still make you cry…

Birthdays, Anniversaries and Christmas…

Always hit you so very hard…

You’ve so much more you want to explain…

But it would never fit inside a card…

So much anger, sometimes hate…

And endless questioning why…

Why was she the one taken so soon…

To become the brightest star in your sky…

The house in which you lived in…

Is no longer that welcoming home…

Now it’s just a peaceful memory…

But somedays you feel so alone…

You wonder what she’d have to say…

Or how proud would she actually be…

Of all the things that you’ve achieved…

If she could only be here with you to see…

If only I could beam you up…

And for just one second be…

In her safe arms once again…

Her endless love would set you free…
