A Single Tear Fell

 

 

 

Always held here deep in my heart

Still in my mind though now apart

In photos now I see your face

Now in my mind I see your grace

Grief has danced its Tango with me

Leaving behind sweet memory

Ever lonely I walk the line

Tears well up and make my eyes shine

Empty inside I search the sky

A single tear falls from my eye

Rolling onto an upturned lip

For you I smile and take the trip

Eager to take on a new life

Loss put aside like a dull knife

Lest I forget for your name was mum

Nicely done, Craig! We all face loss at some time or another, but there’s something about losing your mother – it’s like losing a limb. You’re always conscious of it. I lost mine a couple of years ago, and I keep reaching for the phone to call her…

No nits!
