My Entry Misty 01
by Misty
Little Child Lost

They told me my Mother “passed on” today.
It’s easier for me, if I say it that way.
The thing I can’t say is that my Mother died,
Lord tell me, how can I fill this emptiness inside.

Who’s gonna love me the way my Mama did ??
She asked for nothing and made no demands.
Would listen when I talked and always understand.!!
She smiled when she saw me and cried when I had to go.
I could see it in her eyes, “Oh, how she loved me so”.

Even though I’m grown with a child of my own.
Please, someone tell me why I feel so all-alone.!!
Mama’s the one, who wipes my tears,
Kisses the hurts and should be HERE thru the years.
This woman I love and will miss so very much,
How can I go on without the warmth of her touch?

Today I’m frightened and feel so unsure,
She was like a warm blanket, so safe and secure.
I’m as a lost child who’s abandoned and alone
It was by her side that was always my home.

She continues to teach me from that place afar,
Where the angels sing, far above the stars.
“Be happy for me, my sweet little child,
you’ll see me again in just a short while.
When you’re afraid and unsure of the way
Remember, I will always love you
More and more each day.”
