Happy Mother’s Day

I made up my mind
That you weren’t the kind
To replace my real mom
i wanted you gone.
Years and years went by
Not a tear from my eye
Then one day I grew up
I knew I’d screwed up.
I started trying to stand
Understanding my hand
You didn’t have to be here
You could have turned a deaf ear.
Health issues you bore
I decided to spend even more
Time with you; while you healed
The layers we peeled.
Life seemed so much better
My heart light as a feather
Then the telephone rang
Life crashed with a bang.
You lay lifeless and cold
Your hand in mine I hold
God took you from me
My tears all could see.
I’m so glad I did change
God focused my range
I had the best mom of all
Oh how I wish I could call.

Happy Mother’s Day in heaven Mom.
