She once smiled and laughed 

But that's been replaced

She now sits and stares

No expression on her face 


She once knew our faces

And knew all our names

But life has a way of playing

Cruel games


She once loved our company 

She couldn't get enough

Now she sits quietly 

Talking to herself

She sits amongst us

But she's not really here

How much does she remember?

How much does she hear?

We love Mom so much

It's hard to let her go

While memories fill our mind

Tears fill our soul
