Because Love Of Family
It seems like it
was only yesterday
Mama and Papa were both here
Each time I realize they are not
In each eye forms a tear.
Closing my eyes
Mama and Papa
I can see causing my tears to go away
Fond memories of them have someway
Merged all yesterdays into today.
I hesitate opening
my eyes afraid
If I do Mama and Papa will disappear
Until in my heart I know one future day
We will meet again in another sphere.
Because love of family never dies....
