I'm standing in the shadows,
Feeling like life is passing me by,
I watch another's happiness,
Feeling like I should cry.
This feeling washes over me,
Surrounds me like a shroud,
I can tell no-one how I'm feeling,
Don't dare to voice it out loud.
Then the shadows lessen,
A voice it calls to me,
'Where are you Mummy?'
'Where can you be?'
The darkness clears,
A smile, it lights my face,
My sweet little angel has called me,
Transported me to my rightful place.
My arms they open wide,
Into them my son does run,
He says, 'I love you Mummy,'
'Can we play, can we have some fun?'
I tickle him, he laughs with glee,
My dim mood it has gone,
The child of my heart has reminded me,
Of the way life's meant to be.
We have paid all the bills,
We have food and clothes to wear,
We should make the most of each and every moment,
We should seize the magic so special and so rare.
I've stepped out of the shadows,
My shroud has disappated,
I'm reminded of my purpose here,
My happiness is fated.
PLEASE NOTE; I'M AUSTRALIAN AND OVER HERE WE SAY 'MUMMY' INSTEAD OF 'MOMMY', SO IT'S NOT A TYPO..:
Words that enlighten the soul are more precious than jewels.
