The Magic of a Mother’s Touch
There’s magic in a Mother’s touch,
and sunshine in her smile.
There’s love in everything she does
to make our lives worthwhile.
We can find both hope and courage
Just by looking in her eyes.
Her laughter is a source of joy;
her words are warm and wise.
There is a kindness and compassion
to be found in her embrace,
and we see the light of heaven shining from a Mother’s face.
You will never be forgotten,
although we are apart,
your spirit lives within us,
forever in our hearts.
