Why so fast did she have to go?
Being my mom, i miss her so
Dying so fast, I will never know
I feel so low, I feel so low

Lowering my self-esteem
Never in my wildest dream
Would I see her go, so it would seem
I wanted to scream, I wanted to scream

What did I feel when she died that day?
Was it anger or was it me feeling ok?
I just wanted her to stay
What could I say, what could I say

I just wanted my mom
To help me pick out a dress for prom
So i could talk to someone
I just miss her, I just miss her

Mom, just know I'll be okay
I will see you again one day
