My Mother Passed Away on June the Fifth

Music: The Grenadier and the Lady.
Sequenced by Barry Taylor.

My mother passed away on June the fifth.*
I loved her deeply; now she's simply gone.
All my life I'd known that I was loved,
Living in the circle of her arms.

I can't believe her love is not somewhere,
So strong it was, so much a part of me.
I feel it in the harsh salt of the sea
And in the stinging sadness of the wind.

I ride the waves along the rock-strewn shore.
No one watches me with fear and pride.
Now among the stars I am alone.
In her heart I had my only home.
