The Binding is Gone

You were the binding that kept us together
Now flying above and light as a feather
As a beautiful angel of God up in heaven
Singing in the choir twenty four seven
But now our strongest binding is gone
Leaving us behind sad and alone
Time will heal our hearts we have been told
While you are walking the streets of gold
But the loss of your mother
Hurts like no other
You sweet mama is what held us together
And now you are gone and will be missed forever
