See you child alone
Walking on your own
Hear you say your sins
Do you know where you've been
I'd like to take you child
Walking through the wild
You'll see when we are done
You're not the only one
Who needs to say his sins
Child where should I begin
You know you're not your own
You know you're not alone

See your mother cry
When you ask her why
"Better not knowing
When you are going to die"
You should of asked her why

See the one you love
Hide what their thinking of
But the eyes tell it's true
The rest is up to you

You should of asked her why
Now your love will die
And since she's been dead
She fills your swimming head
The one who cares for me
Waits through eternity
I know what I'm to do
The rest is up tp you

See the wistful wind
Whispering from the end
Of eternity
She's calling out to me
Heed her siren's song
"Come and walk along"

author's note: There is a rampant theme in some of my poems about my mother dying and then she did.

Very excellent piece of work, Walt! It saddens me though...

like lines, never-ending,
constantly forming,
reforming and bending."
