Just when we had turned a corner,
Just when you were getting better,
There you go again.
How I wish that you were here.
Just when you were settling in,
Just when we began to win,
There it goes again,
That thief that robs you senseless.
Restless hands. Troubled mind.
Anger never far behind.
Close your eyes, wish for day,
Let the voices have their say.
Take my hand so you don’t fall.
Hear me whisper love so tall, that
All the shadows hug you tight.
Good night, dear Mother. Just good night.
