I still love you mommy just so you know
And I'm just not ready to let you go
Even though it is your time
I can't get it into my mind
Please surround me with your love
As I reach out to you above

Can my tears ever dry
I wonder as I wipe my eye
Born on the six and buried nine
I'm told mourning take some time
But I don't think so
I'm just not ready to let your go

You are my reason for living
I feel empty, I need filling
As I saw you pass away
I knew nothing could make you stay
We have to carry on as before
Coz you have now opened a new door

God saw you growing tired
And let me be by your side
When he called you home
I knew you were not alone
As I saw you pass away
I knew you just could not stay

I ask no one for sympathy
I have a life time of memories
We all have to make new plans
It's now out of your hands
Leave and be at peace
Your time in body has now ceased

We will talk another time
When I am sound in mind
So this is not goodbye
Even though I will still cry
We shall be together again
Maybe even play this same earth game
