For Mom

Mom, you’re in prison so far, far away
and it hurts me almost every day
I knew when I was there
it was coming to an end
I knew I should’ve done something
right there and then.

Mom, you’re in prison so far, far away
you can’t even be a part of my life today.
as I go through boyfriends and do other things
you won’t be there to call
when me and my dad are
yelling names, cussing at each other,
and he’s putting me to shame because
I did some of those bad teenage things.

mom, you’re in prison so far, far away
I wonder, when you get out
will things be the same
will you be the mom that I know or
will you be someone else ’cause
Prison changed your soul.

I don’t understand the reason for this
going to prison for drugs when in
there it’s a bigger mess.
it’s like taking a drunk to a bar
and expecting him to sober up
when you know he’s just
gonna get more messed up.

Mom, you’re in prison so far, far away
when you get out I guess I will see
the answers to the question I have today
but for right now I will just continue to pray
and hope for the best until that day.
I still love you and will write you too
please don’t forget about me because
I will always care and miss you

Mom, you’re in prison so far, far away
while I sit here, tears running down my face
hoping everything will fall into place
I will never forget the time we had
and try to be brave and not be sad
mom, I know it’s hard and you got a lot on your plate
but remember there’s people willing to wait.

Mom, you’re in prison so far, far away
you got 3 kids and parents too
that haven’t given up on you
you got another chance to make it right
so continue the fight of the battle you’ve got
to make it back to the ones you love!
