Mama

Written by: Aleck Paulino

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
