Oh Mother, my mother,
I touch your tears,
invisible fingers
soothing your skin,
I know you think of me so often
in the day, in the night, in your dreams;
going into an empty nursery
knowing I'll never be there
but I am...In your heart,
in your soul, I shall always be,
for you gave so unselfishly
of yourself.
Inside of you, you created
such a world for me;
a world of laughter, of love,
of sadness, of sorrow--
every emotion people come to know
you shared with me.
And even though I may never
feel your arms around me
I felt your heart beating,
like a lullaby, singing me to sleep
and your spirit giving me a safe haven
already protecting me
nurturing me
preparing me of things to come.
But sometimes the journey
of life pulls souls apart
and yes, I had to go on
to another place.
I wish I could stay
I wish this was a decision
I could make
and I know you do too.
Know this wherever you are:
I will always remember
that yours was the first love,
the first joy, the first soul
I will ever know;
you gave me the courage
to go on in my journey
I hope I can do the same for you.
Your heartbeat will always
call me to you.
Love, your child
