For Mom

An innocent face, a victim's child
Once a father, now just a memory mild
He left his mark here in hearts
Now some scarred for life, Others have just fallen apart
How to live on when a loved one is gone
A father, a brother, a husband, a son
The fear and terror in a mothers eyes
To see her only son taken from life
Now she lives on with unbearable pain
Not even sunshine can stop this rain
A dark cloud holds its place over her head
In her heart he's alive, but in life she knows he's dead
She sees his shadow on the living room wall
In the morning when she goes for coffee she hears his call
When she sees her son she sees a boy of 2 and no more
She holds his child in her arms and remembers his touch from times of yore
These emotions aren't only from experience it's also from the heart
This is also what I have seen as I watch my mother fall apart
