when those waves of sadness hit, when your heart can no longer feel,
when you pick up the pieces to your new normal and feel you can't make it to a new day...
remember me mommy, my love, just remember me.
mommy look around you, because i am here...
i am in the snow dusted in december,
i am blooming in your garden in the spring,
i am the sticks collected at your door and the shells at your steps,
i will be the sunshine wrapped around you to keep you warm,
i will give you sunsets in the summer mamma,
i am in the laughter of all my friends,
when you hold Nicholas's hand, i am there to hold the other,
when you say i love you, i am saying it back softly,
when you hold my pillow, i am holding you.
don't be sad mommy, i am not alone and the same goes for you.
