Legacy

Mothers day its plain to see
The hardest one ever for me
No card to buy, no shopping done
No present for my beautiful mum

I thank the lord from deapest depths of my heart
That from my memories I’ve not had to part
Each one is a blessing and a curse
They bring both smiles and wounds to nurse

There isn’t a day that has passed me by
That I haven’t wept, that I haven’t cried
There hasn’t been a day gone by
That my heart hasn’t ached as I’ve looked to the sky

I have small reminders that help me through
A cross, a ring, watch that smells of you
The watch is shut in a box so tight
To preserve its scent and help me through some nights

Its amazing what can make me crumble
Simple everyday things, ones that are humble
I was offered a pringle the other day
I burst into tears, knew why, couldn’t say

Today the sun shines strong and light
I reflect for a while, I remember your fight
Its been three months now, how is that possible?
That much time gone by surely isn’t plausible?

So this mothers day, my first, the worst
I shall look to my daughter with pride, fit to burst
The circle of life it does continue
and our family goes on, sharing the love that was within you
