I Hear Each Tear Fall On Her Face

My Mom doesn't know I'm watching her
but I'm watching her just the same.
And I hear each tear fall on her face
at the very mention of my name.


She says it sounds like music to her ears
and can be heard over a crowd.
Oh, I hear each tear fall on her face
when my name is said aloud.


I watch her stumble through each day
as she wishes the day would end.
And I hear each tear fall on her face
as she talks of me to her friends.


But there are few who truly understand.
Oh this I've heard her proclaim.
And I hear each tear fall on her face.
Will my Mom ever be the same?

I know that her smiles light up a sky.
But I don't see that smile today.
Oh, but I hear each tear fall on her face.
Her blue skies have turned to gray.

Oh I send to her my warmest hug
with the rays of the morning sun.
Then, I won't hear a tear fall on her face.
For I shall erase them one by one.

Yes, my Mom doesn't know I'm watching her.
But I'm watching her just the same.
And if I hear a tear fall on her face
I'll just softly whisper her name!

This year has been hard Baby as I reach and grasp for every piece of straw to keep from sinking.  Your memory lingers with me every waking hour and in my happiest moments, on the inside I am still crying, and whispering "I miss you so."  The road is hard but you set such an example of overcoming obsticles I find myself every day trying to walk in your footsteps.  You are still my baby, my child, my life.  You are one of the four that is the wind beneath my wings.  So fly high my baby and soar with the Angels!!!!!!!!! Love Mama
