Safe In My Heart Forever

~~

I am really missing you today Mommy, I am melancholy,
     So I took the bus for that long, long journey;
It took me most of the day to get to the cemetery,
               All the headstones were buried in the white.

                          But I knew the path to you.

I trudged in the knee deep snow to that place of tears,
     The wind blowing wispy filigree snow in my face;
And I fell to my knees in front of your tomb, your grave,
                  I placed a blood red rose in the white snow.

                           And I wept for what I have lost.

Long I stayed there with my tears frozen on my cheek,
     And my raven hair lost in the north winds;
Then I got up and I knew that my quest had no purpose,
                   For you are not in this cold place of tombs.

                             You are safe in my heart forever.



                                              " And I will treasure your arms last embrace,
                                                             until this heart stops beating . . . .  "
