Wherever I Go
I was with you when you cried your first tear. And your breath smelled like fresh-fallen leaves after rain. You were the purest thing my minds’ eye could have ever pictured … belonging to me. Never could I have known how much you would teach me … about living, and my own capacity to love. I saw you and I thought I could never be happier than right then and there. And that was the first day of the rest of my life … the new life that started the moment you left my body and entered my heart, and I became your mother.
Now I stand in your empty room and I hear the silent music:
Like a comet blazing ‘cross the evening sky … gone too soon. Like a rainbow fading in the twinkling of an eye … gone too soon. Shining and sparkling, and splendidly bright … here one day, gone one night. Like the loss of sunlight on a cloudy afternoon … gone too soon.
Like a castle built on a sandy beach … gone too soon. Like a perfect flower that is just beyond your reach … gone too soon. Born to amuse, to inspire, to delight … here one day … gone one night.
Like a sunset … dying with the rising of the moon…gone too soon.—Babyface
My tears are streaming … and my very being is missing you immensely … but I have to let you fly, my butterfly. I only hope that every minute you are safe and near someone who might love you even a fraction of how much I love you … no one else can ever have the connection that I have with you. I carried you in my womb but even more … I carry you in my heart …
… wherever I go.
