Mother please don't mourn me

Mother, please don't mourn me

I'm still here, though you don't see

I'm right by  your side each night and day

And within your heart I long to stay.

My body is gone, but I'm always near

I'm everything you feel, see or hear.

My spirit is free, but I'll never depart,

As long as you keep me alive in your heart.

I'll never wander out of your sight

I'll be the brightest star on the summer night

I'll never be beyond your reach

I'm the warm, moist sand when you're at the beach

I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes around

And the pure white snow, that blankets the ground

I'm the beautiful flowers which you're so fond

The clear, cool water in a quiet pond

I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in Spring

The first warm raindrop that April will bring

I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine

And you'll see that the face in the moon is mine

When you start thinking there's no one to love  you,

You can talk to me through the Lord above you.

I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees,

And you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze.

I'm the hot salt tears, that flow when you weep

And the beautiful dreams that come when you sleep.

I'm the smile you see on a baby's face

Just look for me, Mom, I'm every place
