Let the past wash over you
as the waves lap the shore

let the wind take your sorrow
till it exists no more

let your lungs breathe-in the fresh air
and remember tomorrow

exists for you as all the
tomorrows did for them - they

love you still though not here

let the waves wash you clean
you know that you have been
and are forever young

let your life fold around you
like a blanket, like your mother

all the days with her
in your heart remain the same
