A Mothers Love

 
Dont tell him I'm dead she said
 As I sat by her death bed
 Holding her hand I said
 Don't worry now mama
 Just rest your head
 You are the strong one she said
 As I held back the tears
 That would drown me for years

 I smiled at her and said
 Don't worry now mama
 Just rest your head
 Two years later
 Her son was dead
 The loss of his mother
 Haunted his head
 As I sat by his bed and said
 Don't worry now bro
 Just rest your head

    This one breaks my heart. I have held my own mother's hand......but to lose a brother too......is hard to even imagine. Beautiful and touching!
