I Miss You, Mum

I Miss You, Mum

When I’m happy, want to share,
When I need someone to care,
Though I seek you everywhere,
Have to face it: you’re not there.

Grew up sheltered by your wing,
Never wanted for a thing,
You eased every hurt and sting,
Now my birds no longer sing.

There’s an empty space inside
To which access is denied,
Though I’ve tried, oh! how I’ve tried
To heal my wounds since you died.

But I struggled to impart
(I was lacking in the art,
Never knowing where to start)
I loved you with all my heart.

Think about you night and day,
And I want so much to say
That because you showed the way
I’m the man I am today.
