There’s a gift you cannot buy,
That’s very rare and true.
It’s the gift of a wonderful Mother,
Like the one we had in you.
The many things you did for us,
In your kind and thoughtful way.
You brought us so much happiness,
And none can take away.
We mourn for you in silence,
No eyes can see us weep.
But many a silent tear is shed
While others are asleep.
So those that still have a Mother,
Cherish her with care.
You’ll never know the heartache
Until the day that she’s not there.
May the winds of love blow softly
and whisper so you’ll hear.
We will always love and miss you
And wish that you were here.
