Mother of my youth


In my dreams I revisit all the bonds that we once knew
I awake with empty feelings
A void that's left from missing you
There is no end to what I'd give if I could hear you say
My name and ask me like you cared
Just how was my day
Was I hungry, was I cold
Were there needs that you could meet
And if there were, through all your pain
A smile would replace your grief
To feel your touch and warm embrace
I love you whispered in my ear
No sweeter words could there be spoken
Than these words that I hold dear
I see you in the morning shadows
Feel you gently in the wind
Smell you in the flowers fragrance
That life for me will never end
I hear your laughter and singing softly
Relive the moments from the past
To me you were the sweetest mother
Your leavings more than I can grasp
Yet no bitter feelings linger
Only wishes which won't come true
I play back all that I remember
From the mother of my youth
