I love listening to tunes when I take my 7 year old daughter to school every morning and this is one that she sings along with, so adorable!
Ever so gently,
I will lay you down.
Down deep in the cold hard ground.
I will cry droplets of love for eternity,
After they separate you from me.
I will kiss your eye lids,
I will brush my fingers across your cheeks.
A flower will be laid at your stone,
From this moment until there are no more.
And though I turn away,
As the dirt is laid.
I will never forget,
What transpired here today.
Isn’t a choice.
But I will give your silent heart,
~In Memory of my dearest Elizabeth~
I stand before you, a woman,
I carried you within my innermost being,
For so long.
I was patient,
I was impatient.
I knew you before you knew you.
I still know you.
I am the part of you that will never go.
I will give you everything.
The wisdom of a lifetime.
And you will reject it.
For you are a child,
I will be nothing to you.
Until you too,
Become a mother.
And then you will see,
You will understand,
And it will complete you.
As a shadow I carry you with me,
Through my journey of life.
I am attached to you.
As if we are one,
As we were one.
Torn from my side I can only dream.
And stare into the darkness that is my world.
Reaching to you always,
But one can never touch their shadow can they?
A never-ending torment that I will endure.
Because the shadow of you,
Is all I am left with.
Her hair blowing softly in the wind,
She shines with the glistening hope,
Dawn breaking over the horizon,
She walks forward into a new day a
The future of a universe,
Riding quietly beneath her shoulders,
Unaware of potential burden,
She glides triumphant,
