Mom, I looked at the world through your eyes,
I still do, You live inside me, You are not gone,
Now I know, there was never a me, there was only you,
And there was a bit of me inside, but it was merged with you,
And I am a bit of you and a bit of me,
I hear the songs of the age bygone, and live there.
I never lived in this world, because I lived with you,
In your world, in your hopes, and your dreams,
And now that you are no more, I look at this world,
Without you, my world, a new world.
I have to find my way again, though I am lost,
I held your hands for so long, and one day you took them away,
I saw you go, and I could do nothing, I let you go,
And my tears dropped like they would never stop,
And every night was blacker than it was,
And every day was greyer than it was,
And now I know that you left yourself inside me…
And that what is me…is just a bit of me…and rest is all you.
