For The Man and Children She Left Behind

For the Man and Children She Left Behind

She walks through the world just passing time

A spirit longing for the man and children she left behind

Watching over all the people she knew

Sometimes she’s been sad and sometimes blue

Sharing in their walk throughout this life

Watching all their trials with strife

She whispers softly in their ears trying to help them

She hopes they will hear

Watching her own children grow big and tall

When they left her body they were so small

Just a ghost of a woman from a different time

With a heart full of love for those left behind

She watches them closely as they sleep

Wondering will they know her when again they meet

She’s seen their mistakes, if they only knew

She’s always been with them when her life was through

So she walks through the world just passing time

A spirit longing for the man and children she left behind.
