My mum is in heaven

My mum is in heaven 
A million zillion miles away
With a word, I can have what I ask for 
A bow of the head 
Closing my eyes 

A conversation comes to life 
I ask mum, why, did you leave me 
She replies 
I am closer now more than ever 

You talk to me daily 
I watch over every minute of your life 
And sometimes you make me sad 

I now look how you remember me “beautiful” 
I never ever get old 
I don’t get hungry 
I’m never cold 

You are my child 
I love you very much 
I worship every step you take
I hold your hand every inch of your life 

I am no long in pain of any type 
I wish you my child 
I wish you would walk with me 
And not in my shadow 
Pining your life away 

You are more beautiful than I 
You have a great life in front of you 
You have people that rely on you 
You have a lot to offer the world 

To the past I ask you to bid goodbye 
To the future I ask you to say hi 
Now my child it is time to smile 
And show the world the 
Beauty you have been hiding 

Take a step and enjoy 
Enjoy your friends 
Enjoy your family 
Enjoy your life 

Pick your head up 
Open your eyes 
Dress in a smile 
Greet the world 
Like a new born baby 
My baby
