My mom's been having a really rough time lately, so I decided to write her something... It *****, I know.
Standing underneath the stars
I can't help but think how far away you are
I can't remember the last time you held me tight
And whispered that everything would be alright
I miss your embrace...
Diamonds scatter the midnight atmosphere
I wish you could focus on what we have here
You work to the bone, and I know you're so strong
Afterall, you're the only one moving this family along
I hope you know we love you...
The sun's making its grand entrance, feel the warmth?
I wish I knew what goes through your head
Soon enough the sun will rise and planets will align
Just wait out the darkness. Just wait. Everything's gonna be just fine
The sun's coming...
--- Most people might not understand this, but oh well. Mom will.
I wrote her a letter to go with it. :
I know it's been one heck of a year, but you shouldn't let the whole world keep you down. You probably feel like you've got concrete shoes, but you have to remember the cement weathers and chips away. They'll fall off soon.
Forgive, forget. Live, learn. Laugh, love. Smack, kick, punch, spit. Y'know. Smile through all of the pain. Live for today, not tomorrow's satisfaction. Be POSITIVE. Enjoy the small things in life. Be patient. Don't be easily discouraged. This mess will be beneficial in the long run. Just think of what all it's taught you.
Dylan and I love you so much. I know you feel terrible about our birthdays and not getting us much, but I don't care. The best thing you can give us is love, and you've showered us in it.
I can't promise you the sun or rain. I can't promise this is going to get better anytime soon. All I can give you is HOPE.
I love youuuuuu,
-------- Whaddya think? :\
