I can see

I can see my mum,
She’s dancing around my head
Visions of her smiling face
Tucking me into bed

I can see my mum
A hand of cards she holds
Trying not to disappoint my girl
Her winning hand she folds

I can see my mum
Stirring her warming pot
Making her special gravy dish
‘be careful the dish is hot’

I can see my mum
Her face is all a glow
She’s looking at my darling Dad
The love she has for him just shows

I can see my mum
Her family gathered round
Pleased as punch she surveys the room
Her heart so big and proud

I can see my mum
A vision in my mind’s eye
As long as my heart remembers her
I don’t even have to try
