You were taken when I was far too young
Left to learn life without you, what was I to become
I grew up scared and misguided
Our family was fractured, forever divided
I didn't appreciate you while you were here
I should have held our time together, close to me dear
Instead I was selfish, hateful and mean
No longer your sweet daughter, an unruly teen
Time doesn't heal all or erase the regret
Weighs heavy on my mind, never to forget
I wish I had the chance to tell you how I feel
Not having you beside me is torture, shouldn't be real
I think you would be proud of me as a mother today
I learned from the best, what can I say
I know your'e here with me in everything I do
Until we meet again it"ll have to be enough, so very true
