Mother, when I saw that you were sick I did not want to see,

Never did I want to know that soon you would no longer be.

I did not realize that anything could be so wrong, now you are gone,

We spoke for a few minutes on your last birthday, you had no words.

It did not seem as though you were at that time ill, kept that to yourself,

I did not realize in a flash you would be gone, no more a mother or mom.

What were you feeling, what was in your heart three weeks before you died,

I did not realize what was killing you inside, what you were trying to hide.
