The Beautiful Things

Why did you have to go away and
leave your mummy so sad and blue?
I'm right here mummy, with you always,
I thought you already knew.
How come I can't see you or
hold you close to me?
You do see me mummy, you just have to
open your eyes and there I'll be.
I'm the sunrise in the morning
and the sunset at night.
I'm that star you see in the sky
shinning o' so bright.
I'm that flower in your yard
that bloomed the other day.
I'm the beautiful butterfly
you stopped and watch play.
I'm that soft whisper
you hear when no one's around.
I'm the warmth that heals your heart
just when you begin to frown.
I'm the colourful rainbow
you sometimes see right after a storm.
I'm always near you mummy,
I just take many different forms.
I'm in each smile you make
and kiss you give away.
I'm a part of you mummy,
in every thought and word you say.
I see the tears you cry for me
and hear you pray.
I wipe them away with my kisses and
help you make it through the day.
We will forever be together
this I know for sure.
God sent me to be with you
in all that you will endure.
Mummy I wish you could see
my magical set of wings.
Exquisite soft white feathers
made from all of God's loving things.
I wrap them around you
bringing comfort and healing.
As I engulf you, let go
all the pain your heart is feeling.
We meet in your dreams
holding hand in hand.
We walk down beaches
dragging our feet in the sand.
You also have some friends up here
that love you so.
They watch over you
where ever you may go.
So when you're feeling sad and blue
and think I'm not right here.
Just look around at all the beautiful things
and know I am near.
