Where are you, brothers and sisters?
I canít find you
Where did you go?
When Mom died, did a part of you
Did you forget her teachings, or remember
Them at all?
She taught us to live on until the day
That we must answer the call.
What happened to childhood memories
and birthdays, holidays and all?
We now have children and grandchildren
that have extended our family tree.
What do you tell them, or do you
talk about me?
I canít forget you or pretend that
I have amnesia.
There is so much to remember, and
I know that I need you.
How long, how long will it be?
For the rest of my life? And God
forbid until eternity.
Here I am, waiting and still
with empty arms, a bleeding
heart, a mind full of memories
and eyes full of tears.
