Although you cannot hear her voice
or see her smile no more,
your mother walks beside you still
just as she did before.
She listens to your stories and
she wipes away your tears;
She wraps her arms around you
and she understands your fears.
It’s just she isn’t visible
to see with human eye,
but talk to her in silence
and her spirit will reply.
you’ll feel the love she has for you –
she’s left her human body but
your souls will never part.
