She stood so strong on that cold dark day,
The day she knew would have to come.
I held her hand as she looked above
To a light she’d always loved.
HER HAND WAS COLD, BUT HER HEART WAS WARM
WITH THE LOVE FOR HER SPECIAL ONE.
HER FACE WAS BRIGHT BUT HER LIFE WAS TORN
AS SHE LOOKED AT HER PRECIOUS SON.
I ROCKED HIM AS A BABY, I FED HIM AS A CHILD.
I HEARD HIM CALL MY NAME OUT IN THE NIGHT.
I HELPED HIM TAKE HIS FIRST STEP
AND I CRIED WHEN I HEARD HIS FIRST WORDS.
I WISH THEY ALL COULD SEE THRU A MOTHER’S EYES.
They laid Him down. She kissed His face
And wiped the hair from His eyes.
She walked away so silently
With a love that never dies.
