Mom

Your smile was like the sun, brightening up my days

Your touch so tender and gentle, it made all the bad go away

Your voice was so soothing when you’d say everything will be ok

Your eyes so loving and warm, nothing could stand in your way

But that all changed the day god decided to take you away

Your smile, your touch, your voice, all faded away

Leaving me an empty shell, I struggle with everyday

I miss you dearly, the pain aches within my heart

I look forward to the day when we will no longer be apart
