I would give my life to have you back,
Said the Mom
I know you would, said her child.
I cry each night for you, said the Mom
And I catch all of your tears said her child
I pray for the day
That I can see you again,
Said the Mom
Just close your eyes and you can see me,
Said her child
I am always just a dream away………….
You are the first person who loved me,
And you are the first person I loved.
You were always there
when I needed you,
And you always knew
when I needed a hug.
I am here for you now, mom
In your heart and in your soul.
I did not take your heart with me
Instead I left mine with you to hold.
One day I will take your hand
And lead you to paradise,
But until then my beautiful mother,
When you want to see me
You only need to close your eyes.
I am always just a dream away…..
