Every time I turn around
I see you standing there.
You appeared without a sound
And at a glance, filled me with fear.
A blurred silhouette just standing
In the center of the room…
In my head is branding
An uneasy feeling of doom.
I know that I’m the only one
Who can see your kind,
But only after you’re already gone
I realize it’s only in my mind.
She knows me
For she shows me
How I should be
How I could be.
And she’s caught me
And she’s taught me
What I could know
What I should know.
But here I am,
Alone, I am-
So I’ll cry (not for a lover)
For my mother.
“I haven’t seen your cupcake”
My heart stammers at my first mistake
“Really? Because I couldn’t find my last one
And it took me forever to bake!”
A guilty look proceeds me
I look for others to set me free
But no one comes to my rescue
And she won’t leave and let me be.
“Okay, okay, I admit it! I’m a disgrace!
I won’t do it again, you put me in my place!”
She looks at me with a smirk and says
“I just wanted you to admit it. You still have frosting on your face.”

What else is there for me to say?
You and I love much the same way
You’ll love me past when my hair turns gray
And I’ll love you until our very last day.
With all the fights that we’ll keep at bay
I’ll look at you, and I’ll think and I’ll pray
That nothing will change as we lay
And we will always be happy and gay.
A mother who cares a little longer
A father who has grown up stronger
A brother who’s learned right from wrong
A lover with whom I know I belong
All of these added to my life’s shelf
Plus me, so I can be myself.
