I kept staring at an empty window
browsing my mind for the last pictures I have of you.
Oh, how your smile looked
like the sunshine in mid summer.
I kept staring at an empty window,
hoping you would finally show up.
I was expecting you and
a big suitcase and Christmas presents.
Because I knew you were coming.
So I waited.
And waited.
Until the sheriff came to tell me
that you had been involved in a car accident.
Your soul went away with the bus
that sped off the road full of holiday fever.
But how could this be, I waited for you for twelve years.
All will become reality, I hope I’m dreaming.
But still I will continue
searching for you in my empty window.
’Cause you can’t leave me so fast, Mommy.
