Mom told me that she loved me, and that she really cared

If all of this was true, then why was she so scared

She always had me by her side when she needed someone to listen

And when I told her I understood, her eyes had this special glisten

But this time she didn't bother to turn to me for help

She called me up to say "Jesse i'm sorry" she's taking the wrong way out

"Jessica listen to me, I'll always love you, don't ever turn out like me"

"Thank you for always being there, pass my goodbye to the other three"

She hung up the phone as I dropped on my bed

Her words began echoing..."I'm better off dead"........

She taught me a lot throughout my life

But she obviously never listened when she gave me advice

I'll love her forever

I'll still admire her for always

as long as I'm living

My mother she'll be.......
