Cry for me when I am lonely,
and not when I am down.
Cry for me when I am losing all faith,
But not when I am seeking hope.
Each night I gaze into the mirror,
tears trickling down my face,
missing the perfect vision of you and your motherly embrace.
Remembering the mother who loved me with the greatest love.
A love that has no boundaries and stands strong in times of despair.
With each tear, I wonder will I ever see you again
and pray to never forget the life we shared as one.
Each night I returned, hoping you would be there,
Waiting for me,
to lift me up again like you used to do when I was down.
Then one night, when I lost my way,
I thought I felt your presence there with me,
Just as it used to be.
So I called out to you,
“Mother...Can you hear me?” I asked aloud, as I waited for your calm voice.
“Mother...Can you see me?” I asked, as I became withdrawn from my beliefs.
“Mother...Do you still love me?” I asked in despair and loneliness.
Then, as I stood there in front of the mirror,
gazing into the eyes of the one you made,
I heard a voice speaking to me.
A voice from deep within,
that I knew could only be you.
“Son, yes I can hear you ...”
“Yes I can see you …”
“And my love for you will never change, for it is all that I am and what you will become.”
“You are not alone son. I am always by your side.”
“Over the years, I have watched you grow and I am proud of you and the man you have become!”
“Don’t cry for me, for I am in a better place.”
“A place where there is only love and the love I share with you.”
“We will see each other again. This to you I promise.”
“I am in this place forever, waiting patiently for the day we will spend an eternity as one.”
“But for now, my love is within you.”
“I know this because you are a part of me, and I a part of you …”
