Mom, Mom; where have you gone,
You left me behind your only son.
I was seventeen when you left me that day,
The tears and the heartache, still have a say!
I know you’d be proud of my family and life,
But I miss you so much, it still cuts like a knife.
So clever, so loving, so gentle and brave,
True for your life from cradle to grave!
For all the things I did wrong in my youth,
I apologise sincerely, my words speak the truth.
Maybe one day I’ll see you and say it true,
Mom, Mom; I love you….X
