I call upon you

As you lied in that coffin

Icould feel its coldness

It diffusses its vapour

And i knew that wasnt an honour

Mother i hated that coffin

It imbedded onto your body like a muffin

As it sticks to its baking tray

I wanted to cry

Embracing you was my wish

Yet the coffin was heartless as a witch

You were not comfortable

You needed my rescue but i was unable

When i glanced at you

Mama! i wanted you to smile

Yet it stopped your pulse rate

Only the soul and spirit knew your smile

My eyes couldnt regulate its tears

My life was teared apart

And before i knew it you were gone

I was left alone

Today Tonight

I call upon you mother

My heart long for your Joy

your presence is miles away

My eyes seek for your smile

And myvoice keep calling upon you
