There was a moment when I realised
That our pasts remain the same.
You weren’t just a memory
That latched onto my brain.
I still sing our lullaby
As I lay drifting off to sleep.
I promised to stay strong for you-
Like a treasure I shall keep.
But I know all songs must finish,
Like the winters silence grew.
The walls went from pink
To a darker shadowed hue.
I wanted to be more for you,
To hold you through the night.
Maybe I shall look for you
When the situations right.
But, my darling dearest,
A mothers love will always show.
Your teddy keeps me steady,
Like he knows we all must go.
I don’t know if I’ll move forward,
But you’ll never be replaced.
If we ever meet again
Would you still recall my face?
