Oh Mother, my Mother
I touch your tears
invisible fingers
soothing your skin.

I know you think of me so often
in the day, in the night,
in your dreams
going into an empty nursery
knowing I'll never be there

but I am . . .
in your heart
in your soul, I shall always be
for you gave so unselfishlyof yourself.

Inside of you, you created
such a world for me
a world of laughter, of love
of sadness, of sorrow
every emotion people come to know
you shared with me.

And even though I may never
feel your arms around me
I felt your heart beating,
like a lullaby, singing me to sleep
and your spirit giving me a safe haven
already protecting me
nurturing me
preparing me of things to come

But sometimes the journey
of life pulls souls apart
and yes, I had to go onto another place.
I wish I could stay
I wish this was a decision
I could make
and I know you do too.

Know this wherever you are:
I will always remember
that yours was the first love
the first joy, the first soul
I will ever know
you gave me courage to
go on in my journey
I hope I can do the same
for you

Your heartbeat will always
call me to you.
