It won’t be long now Mother, my dear,
Even though you’re gone and no longer here,
I love you so much and miss your smile,
The way you loved me all the while.
I caused you grief and upset your mind,
I never meant to be unkind,
I love you more with each passing day,
Same old me, same young you, love isn’t the same.
I miss you so much I want to be with you,
One last time to hold you and feel the love,
I’m so sorry I didn’t call round the day you died,
Leaving you alone to fear and cold, I died that day too.
