I STILL WANT MY WAY Especially on Mother's Day
It's hard to believe it's been over 5 years
I still have bouts of streaming tears
There are times I need you more than ever before
I'm upset that life has closed that door.
My Mom, my friend, whom I trusted the most
This Mother's Day I give you a toast
To a beautiful woman who meant the world to me
The kind of extraordinary person I try to be.
You interacted with people wherever you went
Many people felt you were a God sent
You'd make people feel good wherever you'd go
No matter who it was, they would always know
That you were kind and considerate and funny too
Anyone you met wanted to be friends with you.
And even animals loved you oh so much
They had a sense of your gentle touch
Whether in your backyard or at the zoo
They easily became your friends too.
I miss you deeply, I still want my way
Right here with me is where I wanted you to stay
Yet God had decided your time was up
For me it was definitely too abrupt.
I told you I love you a million times
For that I have no regrets
And every time I find a dime
There are things I'll never forget
A calm, gentle peace comes over me
And I really feel like I can see
My Mother still guiding me from up above
Continuing, as usual, to give me her love.
You had many hard times throughout your 68 years
And I know that resulted in lots of tears
But no matter what, you continued to try
I truly don't think you were ready to die.
You hadn't accomplished all of your dreams
You were not ready to go, or so it seemed
But who am I always wanting my way
If it were my choice, you'd be here today.
