Today marks six years since we were last together,
Yet it seems we have not been apart.
You may not be here with us in person,
Yet you live through each and every part of me.
There are days I find myself drunk in the darkness,
Yet I remember your laughter in both ups and downs.
At times I feel stuck and struggle to breathe,
Yet your calm and patience is now setting me free.
No problem too big and no matter too small,
Always eager to listen and be present at all times.
It may be six long years since you were last with us,
But your light continues to shine bright within me.
I don’t miss you, mum. Your virtues live on.
