Title: The Void That Time Won't Fill
Dedicated to my Beloved Mother who passed away



There is a hole in my heart
As wide as the sea and as tall as the sky
A heart once full of youth and vigour
A heart once full of hope and promise
A heart now barren and empty
A heart now broken and defeated
There is a hole in my heart
It is the void that time won't fill

But every once in awhile I'll remember the happy times
I'll think back to my early years
And dry my many tears
I'll remember your face, your smile your love
I'll remember your laughter, your beauty and your wisdom
I love you mother, now and forever
I remember the good times
And for one brief second that void is filled



There's a piece of my soul that is missing
As large as a mountain and as barren as the dessert
The strength that I used to carry as my shield is gone
The pride that I used to wave as my flag is no more
A soul now lost and never found
A strength once given now taken away
There's a piece of my soul that is missing
It is the void that time won't fill


But every once in awhile I'll remember the happy times
I'll think back to my early years
And dry my many tears
I'll remember your face, your smile your love
I'll remember your laughter, your beauty and your wisdom
I love you mother, now and forever
I remember the good times
And for one brief second that void is filled



There's a crack in my armour
My strength is gone
My shield is weak
The fuel that used to keep me going is used up
My body is weakened
My spirit is diminished
There is a crack in my fleshly armour
It is the void that time won't fill


But every once in awhile I'll remember the happy times
I'll think back to my early years
And dry my many tears
I'll remember your face, your smile your love
I'll remember your laughter, your beauty and your wisdom
I love you mother, now and forever
I remember the good times
And for one brief second that void is filled



There is a marker in the back yard
A gravestone that is alone
A reminder of a life that once was but is no more
A tormented addition to an anguished sight
A yard that was once filled with parties and dinners
A house once filled with warmth and vitality
There is a marker in the back yard
It is the void that time won't fill


But every once in awhile I'll remember the happy times
I'll think back to my early years
And dry my many tears
I'll remember your face, your smile your love
I'll remember your laughter, your beauty and your wisdom
I love you mother, now and forever
I remember the good times
And for one brief second that void is filled


for one brief second that void is filled
