Somewhere in my heart

beneath all my grief and pain,

Is a smile I still wear

at the sound of your dear name.

The precious word is ‘MOTHER’,

she was my world you see,

But now my heart is breaking

cause she’s no longer here with me.

God chose her for His angel

to watch me from above,

To guide me and advise me

and know that I’m still loved.

The day she had to leave me

when her life on earth was through,

God had better plans for her,

for this, I surely knew.

When I think of her kind heart

and all those loving years,

My memories surround me

and I can’t hold back the tears.

She truly was my best friend,

someone I could confide in,

She always had a tender touch

and a warm and gentle grin.

I want to thank you Mother

for teaching me so well,

And though the time has come

that I must bid you this farewell.

I’ll remember all you’ve taught me

and make you proud you’ll see.

Thank you my Dear Mother

for all the love you showed me.

Although you’ve left this earth

and now you’ve taken flight,

I know that you are here with me

each morning, noon and night
