WHEN YOU WENT AWAY
Hey! Mom, I remember you from yesterday,
Today you are in another place, a different space.
Wherever you are, near or far, peace rests with you,
When you went away, with you went your special face.
I once saw you on a rainy day, you were gone before the sun went away,
You are kept alive with all that I write, forever walk at my side.
Mom, I did not see you enough as for granted we take, a price we pay,
Thinking you would forever be, a fantasy from a child I once did see.
