Gone Too Soon

By Saige
Age 13, Bowling Green KY

You would tuck me in every night
With gentle kisses and hugs so tight
You laughed at my jokes and cried with my pain
You always were there come sunshine or rain

You raised us alone you were so strong
Always with smile and your heart with song
Behind closed doors I would hear you weep
Dad left you alone and the pain went deep

You left too soon I know not why
There'll be many nights I'm sure I'll cry
As I look to the heavens I shall call your name
From this day forward life will not be the same

As time marches on I'm sure it will show
I am in good hands and this I'm sure you know
There is one thing certain that all will see
A part of you will always be a part of me

Love you Mom
