~ Mother And Daughter  ~

Mother, I canít let you go,
please stay with me for a while;
I donít know how I will live,
if I never again see your smile.

I know that you are hurting,
I will pray for the pain to ease.
Iíll sit by your bed each day,
hold your hand until you sleep.

Remember when I was a child
youíd hold me close to your heart,
and quietly sang me a song;
I never imagined weíd part.

Mother, I canít let you go,
please stay with me for a while;
I donít know how I will live,
if I never again see your smile.



My child, I am weary and tired,
my life is too filled now with pain.
I know you would have me hold on,
but itís time I went home again.

And though youíll not see my face,
Iíll never be far from your side,
for Heaven is not so far away,
Iíll stand by you whenever you cry.

So let me go, I need to rest,
I will wait for you at the shore,
and when you cross through the veil,
weíll not be apart anymore.

My child, I am weary and tired,
my life is too filled now with pain,
I know you would have me hold on,
but itís time I went home.
