Motherless Child

He was awakened that night
Medics storm through the door
fighting to save a dying light
among shouts and sirens roar
a sheet covers her from his sight...

Mother has gone
lifeless body on the floor
her work was far from done
She was only forty-four
He was her only son...

Why did she go?
Pulling the covers over his head
Praying to God that He will show
A plan to the boy in the bed
With covers over his head...

Angels wings covered him
As they began to sing
And he smiled through the pain
That such a loss does bring
Knowing one day they will be together again...
