Her visit to my dreams that night,
bestowed a treasured gift.
She saw my eyes had lost their light,
downhill my life did drift.
“I love you mum,
please carry on, and live the life I can’t.
I love you still and always will,
forgiveness, you must grant”.
I drove the car that crashed that day,
the accident was mine.
My precious daughter lost her life,
to forgive is too divine.
“My Darling girl,
your life I took, that fact will always be.
But I’ll live for you, if one more time,
you’ll put your arms around me…” .
She threw her arms around my neck,
she held me close and tight.
She whispered love,
and wiped my tears…
She sat with me all night.
When morning came, I woke alone,
she didn’t answer to my cries.
But the mirror showed the gift she left…
A light was in my eyes.
