Andy
You are a hero to me
and to many others she can't see
but it doesn't seem to ease her pain
it doesn't ever soften the strain
her beautiful eyes will never dry
they will always gaze up for you in the sky
looking to where your soul floats above
looking to connect with the deep bonds of love
and while sweet, the linger of your laugh can cause her tears
but the way you smiled and loved took away her fears
and the absence of you there
seems more than she can bear
on days that don't seem to end
she just wants her beloved friend
the one she raised to stand so tall
the one she never dreamed would fall
but I know you're up there saying
Momma just keep on praying
I love you the same if not more
and when it's your time, I'll be at the door
to welcome you to this loving place
where prayers sent up are like notes of grace
I see you tend to my place of rest
You send me your love, and it's still the best
when you talk to me I hear
and I try to calm your fear
I know that this is so hard for you
but more than anything, I want you to press through
because you raised me to do what was right
and I was honored to take on this fight
I was doing what I did best
and now I lay among the rest
of the fighting heroes that heeded the call
who help make this country the best of all
so when your days won't seem to end
just remember how you were my first friend
the first person who filled my heart with love
and I will always be putting my arms around you
from my heavenly place up above.
So Momma, keep saying those prayers for me
and remember that I can still see
that you honor me with every waking breath
and I thank you and love you from every depth.
