In Memory of Our Mother You were a precious gift from God above, So much beauty, grace and love. You touched our hearts in so many ways, Your smile so bright even on the bad days. You heard God's whisper calling you home, You didn't want to go and leave us alone. You loved us so much, you held on tight, Till all the strength was gone and you could no longer fight. He had called your name once before, You knew you couldn't make Him wait any more. So you gave your hand to God and slowly drifted away, Knowing that with our love we will be together again one day.
