To my Mom who passed away last week.
I will cherish our memories until the end of my days.
You left me too soon - this was not part of our plan
But God's wishes always come before those of man
A special bond we share like no other
For this is possible for only Daughter and Mother
I thank God for each day we were able to share
Without you in my life, it will be difficult to bear
Being with God, you will find joy and peace
In this I find comfort and some happiness at least
Mud-Dear you will always be
My Mom so loving and so loved by me.
