Goodbye Mommy

January 19, 2012
When I was younger, my mother used to hold me tight
She'd hold me in her arms, as I began to fight
I didn't want to sleep, or even shut my eyes,
For I was afraid I wouldn't see her beautiful face,
And all I heard, was a bunch of sighs
She opend her mouth,
In the shape of an O,
As she began to sing, what a beautiful voice
With teers streeming down her face
Her heart began to race
I didn't know what was happening
I was just so young and harmless
I never understood why the song she sang
Was about a baby girl, so lost in pain
Years go by, and I start to understand
There's something wrong with me
It just can't fit in my hand
I hear my parents talking late at night
When I tiptoe around looking for light
I wondered why I could never find it
But then a thought came to me
And a teer fell down me
The only thing I could think of was my mommy
She was my light,
The only reason I couldn't find it
Is because she was sleeping at night
I am now ten years old
I now understand why my hair looks so old
It's falling out left and right
But I try to keep hold of it with all my might
I now understand the song my mommy sings to me
As I get down on my knees and I plea and plea
I run to my light crying so heavy
As she rocks me back and forth
So very slow and steady
I didn't feel good
I felt sick and lonley
As I lie in a hospital bed
I hear beeping sounds all around in my head
My mommy walks in and I sit up
She sits on the bed with her chin up
She tells me she loves me so very much
I tell her I love a bunch and a bunch
She starts to sing my favorite song
While she holds me in her arms
I knew I was going to live with God
I just wasn't ready to leave my mommy
She sang and she sang
As we both lay there weeping
My mommy looked over
And I whisper to her
So light and so sudle
I began to studder
"Goodbye Mommy"
She tightened her eyes
She was filled with sighs
She sat there weeping
And singing the song of the babygirl that was lost and in pain
That babygirl was me
She heard the long straight ring
My heart stopped beating
And the song of the little girl played over and over
Like an echo in my head.
