Mama

The wound has long closed
Not a scar, not a trace
Yet pangs of pain are felt
From memories I could not erase

Time has not dulled
The emotions of that day
When you’ve decided then
That with me you can’t stay

The Lord took you from me
That much I understand
But why couldn’t you fight
And win your last stand?

I still see your smile
And I yearn for your embrace
You’re forever in my heart
Only you can fill that space

    Believe me Aleck she is still smiling and watching over you, regardless of the fact that she cannot put her arms around you, she is watching you lovingly and admiringly, each and every day, Smile, she will see it, and rejoice, xxxx vie
