To My Mother by Shalaya Riddick

The light of my life that left too soon

The person who never got to see her sapling grow

Doing everything for you 

Growing into a young woman

 

You'd be proud of what I've become 

The person you wanted me to be 

Just like you

I know you're watching me

 

Me growing without you is scary

But I can't change that

I have to keep pushing 

To make you proud 

 

Yes I do miss you

And I still need you

Thats why you're in my heart

In the place you can never be removed from

 

You know dad misses you too

He says I'm very strong

Strong enough to keep me and him together

I guess I'm his rock

 

Im going to make you and the world proud

Im going to be something

Embrace Myself

And do my best

 

Always and forever

Keep me in you're heart as you're in mine

I'll keep you in my soul

And to my mother, I love you
