To My Beloved Mother

Mother you were such a good one,

you raised me oh, so well

You lived your life and grew in grace,

No one else can take your place

No more pain and suffering will you

endure I loved you so much, but God loved

you more. He chose you to come through

those pearly gates, Oh you are so much

better in that perfect place. You were much

more than a mother, you were my

backbone, best friend, mentor and leader I

will always love you, and your memories

will live with me for the rest of my life. I

could not be so selfish to have you all for

myself. He wanted to enjoy all of those

magnificent memories that I have of you.

You have emerged from this earthly shell,

Now with ? And ? you will dwell.
