Remembering his kind words,
no word she dared to speak.
Memories of his courage and strengh,
she felt so tired and weak.

Knowing that he loved her,
she felt a pang of hate.
His appearances were right on time,
and now she was too late.

She couldn't save her son from death,
but she will honor his life.
She wasn't there as a mother,
so she'll be motherly to his wife.

His acts were brave and always nice,
she was almost overly mean.
He wasn't scared to be known,
so she remained unseen.

She knew her son was like a saint,
she was a devil in disguise.
His eyes were dry; he stayed strong,
she was left to cry.

Now that mother knows better,
she will take his place.
She'll be stronger even more,
remembering his grace.

Goodbye.

That truly touched my heart. I guess some bad mother's can only realize that they were wrong when someone special to them dies. Wow, what a run-on.
