  TO MY MOTHER

_ -_ -
My actions have always been so clear
Don't face the things that cause you fear
Inside my throat , muscles close tight
I watch the battle, I see the fight

-_-_
Her mind is wandering, slowly away
I've begged her please try to stay
Read and write, just try to fight
Stay here with me, another night

-_-_
You must remember, that's your son
Can't you remember, he's the one?
He cried and cried, you walked the floor
His pain you soothed he cried no more

_-_-
I watch you leave me every day
My friend my mom, don't go away
I long to hear you call once more
And say "let's shop" the nearby store

-_-_
You now just sit, all lost in there
Please don't leave me mother dear
I seldom allow myself to cry
But now I watch you, slowly die

_-_-
My heart is breaking, no one should see
How bad this aches inside of me
My tears are falling, rain from the sky
I've begged 'Him' mama "don't let her die"

-_-_
I Love you Mama, don't watch me cry
I know you'll leave, I know you'll die
But on this day we'll sit and play
I know you'll go, but right now, you stay
-_-_
