Mother, why do you cry?
I know your hurting for me.
I think it might be my fault.
How can I help you?
How do I ease your pain?
You kissed so many of my worries away,
Chased the darkness from my dreams,
What do I need so I can do that for you?
I do not like this version of you.
With that angry expression,
And tears filling your eyes.
What has changed now
That makes you so sad?
If I were to sit beside you,
Cradle your head against my shoulder
Run my hand over your hair,
Would that ease your fear?
Do not cry mother.
We will be together again.
I know now it is my fault that you cry.
I left you behind when I went home.
You're still there in that gray world,
Unable to hold me like you did yesterday.
I will fight for you in this world of light, mother.
I will chase away your darkest dreams.
It's my turn to kiss away your hurts,
And stand by your side facing your demons.
Life is hard mother,
To hard for you to grieve.
Love me and remember,
You taught me everything I know,
And I know what I hav
