Mommy

Mommy

I hear your words of advice

I listen, strain

To insure your voice

I am filled with sorrow

In need of your security

To hear your melodic songs, smooth as honey

Dance through my ear

Pump from my heart

Extending to my lengths

I am filled with hope

Of your being joyous for me

In the woman I have become

Becoming the woman you were

Maybe even better

Although there cannot be a way

I am filled with pain

Wanting to climb in your lap

Lay head on shoulder

And weep

While you teach me the gospel

While you teach me how to be strong

Assuring the Heavenly Father knows

Assuring the Heavenly Father hears

Every ache and pain

I am filled with emptiness

I am in need of

Mommy
