Carrying on

The ones you love can never really die
They’re living deep inside you every day
They hear you when you laugh and when you cry
There’s nothing that can take that love away

It’s hard that you can’t hold them in your arms
Or hear them as you walk in through a door
They aren’t around to keep you safe from harms
Or pick you up when you are on the floor

But know that you were always on her mind
And know that she will stay inside your heart
You cannot leave such love as that behind
And now you two can never be apart

The hurt is real, that too is part of you
But deep inside is still the Mom you knew
