"Window To Yesterday"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
She stands there at the window,
A child of two or three...
I wonder what she's thinking,
As she's peering back at me...
~~~~~~~~~~
Her dress is full of ruffles,
Adorned with pretty lace...
Eyes so wide and trusting,
A smile upon her face...
~~~~~~~~~~
I see her gently waving,
Her spirit seems to say,
Give me just a moment,
I'll come outside and play...
~~~~~~~~~~
I see another figure,
A ghost from long ago,
She stands there in the window,
I know this can't be so...
~~~~~~~~~~
Her smile is warm and tender,
She waves to me outside...
She's softly blowing kisses,
I brush my tears aside...
~~~~~~~~~~
The face looks so familiar,
I know this cannot be,
The lady is my Mother,
The little girl was me...
~~~~~~~~~~

If I could havea lifetime wish,
A dream that would come true,
I'de pray to God with all my heart for yesterday and you...
A thousand words can't bring you back,
I know because I've tried...
Neither can a million tears,
I know because I've cried...
You left behind my broken heart,
And happy memories to...
I never wanted memories,
I only wanted you...
A million times I've needed you,
A million times I've cried...
If love alone could've saved you,
You never would have died...
In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still...
In my heart you hold a place
No one can ever fill...
It broke my heart to lose you,
But you did not go alone,
Part of me went with you,
The day God took you home.
I Love You Ma,
Johnna
