I see you out of the corner of my eye
And smile to myself as I start to cry
My heart still hurts no matter what I try
And my love stays strong as time goes by
My memories flood back almost every day
In a song, or a smell, never fading away
I prayed so hard that you would stay
You tried so hard but now with angels you play
Your time on earth was so cruelly cut short
I remember the fun and the lessens you taught
How to be a good man and not get caught
And to use my strength as a last resort
But my strength was tested the day you left
And I looked down at you full of tearful bereft
As he took you away with a hand so Deft
And now I morn every day your soulful theft
I Love you more each passing day
I love you in every possible way
I wish so much you were able to stay
But I understand you had to go away.
Love and miss you mum!
