I want to laugh
But with whom?
Today I want to give a gift
But to whom?
Today is the day I should celebrate
Where is she?
Today is the day I should put the world at her feet
Drop hundreds of flowers on her path
Today is the day I should put heaven under her feet
Give her all the happiness in the world
This is the day I should put a smile on her face
Today is the day that I should be with her
I am with myself
With just my tears and her dust
Today is the day I sit with her memory
I kiss her hands,
They are full of my tears… as I sit at her grave
Today is Mother’s Day
She can’t hear me say
Happy Mother’s Day
