Staring out over the water
Wondering how much of it
Are my tears?
A mother grieving her child
At this same spot year after year
The water laps onto the shore
Bringing with it memories
And questions of why?
No answers ever come
Each day the heart cries out
Asking for strength and courage
For faith to get me through
Each day as I miss you.
I gave you my heart
I gave you life at birth
I wish I could give life…again.
