An Angel Cries for Me (For Mum)
An Angel cries for me from her vista far above
She cries for my body, the pain, the loss of blood
She cries for a child, motherless again
She cries for the endings, that leaves the survivors souls bleeding.
She knows now all she was told was true
The gifts of the summerlands so numerous, not too few
The light, the love, the feeling of belonging
No more her soul screams with some ancient longing.
But still my angel cries for us
Knowing the lonliness and pain we face each day
She wishes there was more she could do
To take our pain away.
We long for more than tears and she does too
Just another day or maybe two
One more hug, one more I love you
But we can't have those things no matter what we do.
So she'll continue to cry as she watches her family wipe their eyes
She cannot wipe their tears away, as she always did before
Instead she wraps us in her gossamer wings of love
And for a brief moment we feel the touch of our Angel up above....
