If You Were Here

I love you and miss you Mama. Happy early Mother’s Day.
“IF YOU WERE HERE” by Poe
Father: What is it Annie?
Daughter: I miss you.
If you were here
I know that you would
Truly be amazed
At what’s become of what you made
If you were here
You would know how I treasured every day
How every single word you spoke
Echoes in me like a memory of hope

When you were here
You could not feel the value that I placed
One every look that crossed your face
When you were here
I did not know just how I had embraced
All that you hid behind your face
Could not hide from me
‘Cause it hid in me too
Father: How are you tiger, it’s great fun, talking with you. like this–in fact I’m going to do it more often

Now that I’m here I hear you and wonder if maybe you can hear yourself
Ringing in me now that YOU’RE somewhere else.

Father: I miss you a lot
‘Cause I hear your strange music gentle and true
Father: I’m sharing with you some of my reflections

Singing inside me with the best parts of you
Now that I’m here
Father: But I’m so proud of everything you do there. Love you most
I hope somewhere you hear them too
Father: Next time I see you you’ll proudly sing it back to me

Now that I’m here

Father: Oh…

I love you…

Daughter: It’s okay, you can go now

Here is the song used in a video I found on YouTube
