Mother Dear, Tear

You don’t know
Don’t know how much it hurts to see your pain
You don’t know
How much love I want to show you again and again
Mother dear, I love.
But dear, dear mother,
Forgive me when I cannot cry
When you need my aid and all I do is sigh
I love
So tenderly and dearly
Oh mother I’m sorry!
Though emotions are poured out in ink
You will not spy the smudge of a tear
My eyes are every color but tortured pink
I gently lift you up from your coffin
Your eyes are glazed
My heart longs to feel, to be amazed
My mind refuses
“She going going gone”
No need now to fuss
She’ll be gone, I’ll have no remorse,
But I lie to my heart
Mother dear!
Mother, friend, confidant
See myself behind me
I love, love so intensely
Free me mother dear, to tear.

Mother Dear, Tear
