A Hard Story

By Lanelle


The hardest story
To tell someone
Is about a lady
Who I call Mum

I lived my life
Her hand in mine
Not always there
From time to time

A listening ear
And open heart
A fateful day
And we did part

It broke my heart
To say goodbye
Always wanting to
Get up and say Hi

But she wasn't there
No longer around
I hear her voice
Or just her sound

I want her to tell me
Everything's alright
To give me a hug
And a kiss goodnight

And I would say
I love you Mum
Too much regret
It was never done

I don't know why
It was never said
But she knows in her heart
Not in her head.
