When your mother dies
It doesn’t matter how old you are.
You still feel like an orphan because
You’ve lost your guiding star.
She’s the one you’ve always turned to
Whenever anything went wrong.
She’s the one who cleaned your skinned knees
And chased nightmares away with a song.
She was there to celebrate
All your important days with you,
Like birthdays, and holidays,
And your very first day of school.
It was easy to take her for granted
Because you knew she’d always be there,
Until the day that she wasn’t,
And you discovered life truly wasn’t fair.
So each Mother’s Day take a moment to
Remember the best things about her,
Like her gentle hands and open arms,
And how close the two of you were.
And you can be sure she’s in Heaven
Thinking of you on this day above any other.
That’s because you are the wonderful reason
That she became a mother
