If I Could See
Mother, where are you? © Baby Girl Whitman
Where could you be?
It’s been thirty-five years; do you think of me?
If you could see
You’re a grandma of two and a mother to me.
Although life has not been easy, I wish you could see
My daughter she’s eleven and looks just like me.
Your grandson is fifteen and a fine young man.
Mother, I just wish you could see.
She has my curly hair,
My bright green eyes.
She has my determination as well as my fight;
She is my angel.
They are my life.
I know they would make you proud.
If only you could see.
My life is not complete because I long to
Meet the mother whom looks like me.
May God bless and protect you where ever you may be.
Your Baby Girl Whitman
