On the morning of October 27, 1998, I realized that it was the 16th anniversary of my mother's death in 1982. I was missing her that day as badly as I did on the day that she died, so I sat down and wrote her this song.
I STILL CRY
How can it be after so many years
I’m still holdin’ on to the pain?
You’ve been gone for so long
I know I should have moved on
But the memories of you made me stay
And I can still hear your sweet voice
Callin’ my name
And sometimes I feel like you’re near
And with my heart in my throat
I close my eyes and I hope
I’ll turn around, and you’ll be right here.
But you’re still gone
No matter how much I hope or I dream
or I fall on my knees and pray
And I still cry
When I think of your face and how you loved me that way
Oh How I long for those days gone by
You’re still gone
I Still Cry
If time is the healer, then I've wasted years
Cause I can't get you out of my mind
The hurt is so deep, and is a real to me
as the first day I left you behind
But these tears I'll keep cryin' even though that I know
You're leavin' was part of the plan
And I'll long for the day, when I'll see you again
When my life comes to an end
