I was looking at the stars tonight
and I realized how much I miss you.
and how I wish you were here,
I'm writing you this letter now
even though I know you'll never see it.
I wanted to tell about all the things you've missed..
I'm growing up now and it's getting harder everyday,
you weren't there for those mother speeches
that all my friends complained about the next day.
I wanted you to meet this guy I just met
I wanted to tell you about my first love
but i know how hard that is
when you're watching me from up above...
Why did you have to leave so soon?
Why weren't you there when I had boy problems.
Day by day I grew jealous of my friends
because every time something went wrong
they had their mothers to make them belong
When I felt like an outcast
you weren't there to make it right..
You weren't there when I was little
to tuck me in at night.
Yet I'm writing you this letter
that you will never see
But I do want you to know what I grew up to be
I've grown to be strong and independent
I cry every now and then
but I hold close to my heart a picture of you
because every time I look at it
I know this one thing is true
You never wanted to leave
It was simply your time to go
But one day mom, I'll see you again
And I'll be able to tell you all the things you don't know
But until that day comes
Please remember one thing
I love you forever and always
and I'll always be mommy's little girl.
