More Me Less You

Poem for Mum

I’m a walking mum tattoo

The ink in my blood

Is close as I can get to you

And some nights I can sleep without one tear

And some days I don’t need you here

And some times I can hardly breathe

And sometimes your face is all I see

And I get up and I get going

Cause life goes on without you knowing

The clock keeps ticking

The sun still sets

And i’m just here doing my best

And you’re in the ocean

And you’re in the lake

And you’re in the air

Make no mistake

She is the sky

She is the ground

She is the beat that makes my heart pound

I can still feel her hugs goodbye

I can still smell her kiss good night

I can still dream so vividly

It’s like she’s right here back with me
