    Iv found this poem and it just made me cry so so much, i hope you all like it and it just describes me so so much i cant explain and im sure it will mean a lot to others as well :hug: :hug:


    My mum, she tells a lot of lies
    She never did before.
    From now until the day she dies,
    She'll tell a whole lot more.

    She used to tell the truth a lot,
    But now it doesn't matter,
    I died and went to heaven,
    Her life is all in tatters.

    Ask my mum how she is?
    She'll say "yes I'm fine"!
    She wants to beg
    "Please help me, I can't find that prince of mine!

    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.

    You think you know the feeling,
    But this, it cannot be,
    For even though you loved me,
    You didn't love as much as she.

    She will smile and tell you,
    "It's ok, God, he has a plan".
    But she will turn away and cry,
    Cause she just can't understand.

    Tell a joke and she will laugh,
    But she is not ok
    She wants to share the joke with me,
    But it will not be today.

    Some day you will feel better
    "Yes I will" she lies.
    She knows this will not happen,
    Until the day she dies.

    Ask my mum how she is,
    She'll say, thank you, good
    She cannot tell you how she feels,
    Oh I wish she could.

    Ask my mum how she is
    "Im fine, Im well, Im coping".
    For God's sake mum,
    Just tell the truth, just say your heart is broken.

    Ask my mum how she is,
    "I'm well, I'm good, and you"?
    I'll shake my head in heaven
    It simply isn't true.

    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.

    Her carnival is over,
    She's stepped off the carousel,
    But to save you feeling badly,
    She'll say, "thanks all is well".

    My mum she's not gone mad yet
    But oh so very nearly.
    Dont ask my mum how she is,
    Ask her how she is, really.

    I am here in heaven,
    I cannot hug from here.
    If she lies to you don't listen.
    Hug her, hold her near.

    On the day we meet again,
    We'll smile and I'll be bold
    I'll say "Your lucky to get in here
    With all the lies you told"

Think as hard as you can, but there are no words to describe it... :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug:
