Hello Lady

You are so far yet so close, Lady

How could you, Lady?

You said you would be there for me, Lady

You have left me, Lady

I feel so alone and different, Lady

You are so far yet so close, Lady

I want you here with me, Lady

I love you, Lady

How could you leave me, Lady?

I don’t blame you, Lady

You have missed so much, Lady

So much of my life has passed you by, Lady

I came into your life, Lady

Then you left mine, Lady

I was so young, Lady

I didn’t understand, Lady

Now I am thirteen, Lady

I understand you’re gone, Lady

But I still miss you, Lady

I never got to say goodbye, Lady

You aren’t just a Lady

You’re my mom
