Isla Grant – Mother lyrics

If only I could see again
The twinkle in my Mother's eyes.
To hear again her gentle voice
And have her hold me when I cry.

If only she could be here now
To help me free my troubled mind.
I wonder if my mother knows?
Although I've tried - no peace I find

It seems a hundred years ago
That when I'd cry she'd wipe my tears
And just like magic when I'd fall
She'd be right there to calm my fears

Oh Mom, If you could only see
The hurt and pain I'm going through
I must have cried ten million tears
Since the tears I cried when I lost you

I know you're never far away
I almost feel you close to me.
Oh how I'd love to hold your hand
Your loving smile, I'd love to see

But in my heart, you're still alive
I think about you everyday
Oh Mother dear, why did you die
And leave me here so far away
