There are no words to place this void,
or how I struggle to avoid
the thought of you, though you were dear.
I fight myself to stop the tears.
No matter what, you were there.
No matter what, you always cared.
It's been so long, but still I cry.
Oh! If you knew how hard I've tried
to rid myself of endless thoughts,
but I cannot, true joy you brought.
I can't believe you left me so.
This world is cruel, you aught to know.
How I long for your hug.
How I long to feel your love.
To hear your voice over the phone.
To feel you there when I feel alone.
To right my wrongs, to yes my no's.
To hold me high when I feel low.
I feel you left my side too fast,
the world around me shook, then crashed.
I saw you struggle and fade away.
I saw you wither day by day.
Oh! If you knew how it hurt me so
to see your pain, to see you go,
to see your pride brought down to shame.
It hurt so much when you forgot my name.
I was your baby to the end.
I can't forget, I can't pretend.
Mom, I love you, and if your were here,
I'd hold you tight and keep you near.
I miss you...
