Farewell Dear Mother By an Unknown Author
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.
