It’s been 5 months since you said goodbye
Every day, I try my hardest not to cry
Each day when I look at my son
It saddens me that you couldn’t see what he’s become
The selfish part of me wanted you to stay
Maybe the cancer would’ve stay at bay
In my heart I know you’re at peace
I just wish that I could’ve kept a piece
Just to help me get through
The days when it’s just too much to bear
Lord knows it isn’t fair.
Your lessons remain and help to ease the pain.
I know we’ll see each other again
I just have to be patient and wait for the eventual ‘when’
