I've tried to fill the hole up
With other family,
And I want to keep her memory alive,
So I started her family tree.
My search has brought me many kin
Who've helped to fill that hole;
But I realize now, there'll always be
An emptiness in my soul.
I guess that's just the way it is
With people and their mothers...
A special bond exists with them
That can't be matched by others.
How many times had I heard her say,
"Someday I won't be here..." ?
I thought I'd always have her, though,
Now all I have is tears.
I know she's with HER mother now,
That's not what makes me sad;
It's that I never asked her about our past,
Now, too late, I want to know so bad.
So please, God, when you see my mom,
Give her all my love,
And tell ALL my kin that I'll see them again
When I join them up above.
