It Seems Like Yesterday

The doctor told me, Mom was going away,
     so many tears I've cried since that day;
my tears could fill all the oceans and seas in this world,
                    Mom said to me, don't cry, don't be afraid.

                               It seems like yesterday.

She said, I have suffered for so very long,
    I have fought a terrible battle and I have lost;
And I am so very, very tired, can you not see that child,
                    I nodded, dried my tears and held her close.

                              It seems like yesterday.     

I stayed beside her bed and watched her sleep,
    Holding her hand and counting every gasping breath;
Finally the end came in the light of dawn with birds chirping,
                    Allowed to cry now, I wept, I wept.

                              It seems like yesterday.
