If You Were Here

My memory of you has faded over time,

But still I think of you and wish you were here.

I wish I knew what you thought

What would you say?

I am not the little girl you left here all those years ago.

Would you like what I have become?

My one hope is that you are proud

I hope you look down and say with pride,

"Yeah that's my granddaughter."

I wish I could hear you words of comfort.

I just want you here 

But I know it's selfish of me to wish and want

It was your time to leave and the pain was too great

So instead My heart will keep on missing you

My mind will wish you were here

And my soul will know you are where you belong
