  • Shell Of A Person I Once Knew

    You're the shell of the person I once knew
    When I talk I know you can hear
    But I barely feel your spirit lingering near

    You've given up… at least part way
    I can't help but envision the words that you'd say
    If you weren't the shell of a person I once knew.

    You express your love for me, but that's just it
    You'd rather I come and quietly sit
    I wish you were more than the shell of a person I once knew.

    I love you with all of my heart and soul
    Sometimes I feel like I'm losing control
    Because it's hard to see the shell of a person I once knew.

    My heart hurts because I know you're aching
    Your body's there, but it's just the casing
    It's the shell of a person I once knew.

    I don't want you to die; I'd be left here on earth
    But passing on brings peace and rebirth.
    You'd be more than the shell of a person I once knew.

    It's your choice in the end to fight or give up.
    It's not our actions that define when or what…
    Please be more than the shell of a person I once knew.

    Release your spirit to Heavenly Father's grace
    Only then will you see his kind, smiling face.
    No longer a shell of a person I once knew.

    You'd be free from all the worldly limitations.
    In heaven you'd be expressing exclamations,
    Freed from the shell of a person I once knew.

    You're not really the shell of a person I once knew,
    You're my mother and I love you.
    You're not a burden that I heavily have to bear
    You're strength, inspiration, and care.
    You're kind and loving and all that I aspire to be
    It's selfish to want to keep you here close to me.

    You get to choose how long you want to stay
    So I'll keep on coming every day
    I'll rub your feet and scratch your back
    Read you your line up and help you take a bath.

    Mom, take your time, it's patience I'm learning
    I'm developing and my soul's constantly yearning.
    Each lesson is coming… selflessness and humility
    You're who I want to be.
