My Mother, My Friend Poem Lyrics

Mum, I wasn’t prepared for you to pass so soon,
There was so much more I had hoped we’d do.

I wanted to thank you for loving me again and again,
From the day I was born, I always knew my best friend.

No matter how many times I said, “You don’t know what it’s like.”
You knew what I needed to hear and would always be right.

Now you’re gone, I wish I had listened more and talked less,
I would have handled things better, with much less stress.
