Mother Mine
© Sky Nelson, August 2018
As you lay, I watch you from a distance
You're inward eyes betray a weary soul
You place your head, on the ground where it is welcomed
I can tell you wanna spend this time alone
Mother mine, how I long to see you happy
I want to lift the wrinkle from your brow
I've come for reassurance that you want me
Don't tell me that it's too late for that now

There are days when the past is just a memory
And your skin can feel the breeze upon your face
But today the wounds are fresh and tender
From stories that your heart will not erase

Mother mine you have tried to give me shelter
But you had no source of comfort to endow
We can try to find some moral in the passage
Don't tell me that it's too late for that now

Solo instrumental
Mother mine may the hours treat you kindly
May you find what piece your conscience will allow
Surround yourself with things that make you happy
I know that it's not too late for that now
Just thinking about your presence makes me happy
I'm glad that it's not too late for that now
