Mother, where are you?
Do you remember me?
If only I could find the door
To who you used to be.

I see a look within your eyes
That fills my heart with fear.
Dear Mother, Where are you now?
I wish you still were here.

Each day we live “The Long Goodbye”
As you wander far away.
I cannot find my Mother now,
And I’ve still so much to say.

Words to bless and comfort you,
Both here… and where you’ve gone.
I pray God grants you mercy,
As you travel realms unknown.

Today I’ll hug the stranger
I’ve never met before,
Who looks just like my Mother did,
Who’s not here anymore.
