In tears, we saw you failing, And watched you pass away
Our hearts were slowly breaking, We wanted you to stay.
But when we saw you sleeping, So peaceful, free from pain
How could we wish you back with us? To suffer that again.
It broke our hearts to lose you, But you did not go alone
For part of us all, went with you, The day God took you home.
We think of you still living, In the hearts of those you touched
For nothing loved is ever lost, And Mom, we love you, so very much.
God Bless You, Love Your Family
