Mum I Miss You

Time passes on

Like a river that must always run.

Now you are gone

But I will have you till time is done.

You can never take away the love you gave me yesterday

I don’t have to capture you

‘cause you’re here in my memory.

My life goes on

Like a song that is never still.

I sing that song

To the emptiness I’ll never fill.

I don’t need your photograph

To see your face in front of me.

Sometimes I think it is the spark of conflict

With which we affect most heavily.

But I hope if you think of me

You’ll remember only harmony .

And time passes on.

Mum: I miss you
