My Mum, she tells a lot of lies,

She never did before

But from now until she dies,

She'll tell a whole lot more.

Ask my Mum how she is And because she can't explain,

She will tell a little lie

because she can't describe the pain.

Ask my Mum how she is,

She'll say"I'm alright."

If that's the truth, then tell me,

why does she cry each night ?

Ask my Mum how she is

She seems to cope so well,

She didn't have a choice you see,

Nor the strength to yell.

Ask my Mum how she is,

"I'm fine, I'm well, I'm coping."

For God's sake Mum, just tell the truth,

Just say your heart is broken

She'll love me all her life

I loved her all of mine.

But if you ask her how she is,

She'll lie and say she's fine.

I am here in Heaven

I cannot hug from here.

If she lies to you don't listen

Hug her and hold her near.

On the day we meet again,

We'll smile and I'll be bold.

I'll say,

"You're lucky to get in here, Mum,

With all the lies you told!"

I don't usually post here: I lost mum to heart failure. But I had to say this poem is touching and beautiful.....
