Dear Madre

Dear Madre Hello for the first time I say to my mom, As I am lying down in the hospital bed, Telling her everything well be ok, She drops a tear as I sign the song she once sang to me, Telling me she is sorry for leaving me, She knows I don't have a lot of time, So she say's something to me so I can go in peace, "Baby don't hate me for leaving you, Don't love me either, Don't think anything-just look in your heart, Keep me there in till I'm up there, To hug you for the times I never did" I smile at her tell her to get closer, I give her a kiss in the cheek, As I close my eyes she's the last person I see.
