 Reflections of My Heart

Somebody's Praying ღ KKD ღ

Somebody's Praying

Oh my dearest of dear friends
How we have dreaded this day so
I know I promised to be with you
yet I find I can't... All I can do is pray

I had the true pleasure of meeting your Mom
to me she was so gracious and kind
Made me feel like true family
and for the moment to all else I was blind

We spend hours on the phone
wishing for togetherness to have just one more turn
We've talk so often of just going shopping
Yet now we shop together on line for your Mother's Urn.

I wish so much to be there, if just to hold your hand
To dry your tears when they begin to fall
I have to remain strong and focused
but when I hang up the phone is when my weakness calls

Mothers and Daughters, oh how they can struggle
but never ever doubt the love
For no matter how the connection was made
rest assured the union was blessed from above

So many dreams
So many tears
So many precious moments
So many lost years

We keep what we most need
and discard the rest
Cling to what makes your heart smile
and do for "You" what is best.

I'm praying your days get easier with time
let those  hold you up who love you so
I pray you feel my love across the vast distance
for my dearest dearest friend we have many miles to go

I am with you today
and forever My Girlie Girl
