Unspoken Words

(A song for Iris, my mother)

 

Why do I not share the moments held within my care?

Why do I not speak of feelings, now I am aware?

Time seems to fade away, drifting us apart

Should I not tell you now what's within my heart?

 

Flowing love is now decanted

Taken every day for granted

Love you gave is now implanted

Mother to a child

 

I shall always hold as precious every thing you are

Fragments of a life of giving, even from afar

Once you were all my world, held with soft caress

All that our life consumes, it does not mean the less

 

Flowing love is now decanted

Taken every day for granted

Love you gave is now implanted

Mother to a child

 

          Sunlight touches, softly brushes, head of silver hair

          Eyes forgiving all as endless care

Now it's time to let you know the gift you have bestowed

          Cannot be repaid but simply grows

 

Flowing love is now decanted

Taken every day for granted

Love you gave is now implanted

Mother to a child
