In Loving Memory Of Mommy
Sunrise July 07,19_ _
Sunset August 21, 2004
I lit a candle tonight, in honor of you
Remembering your life, and all the times we’d been through.
Such a small little light the candle made
Until I realized how much in darkness it lit the way.
All the tears I’ve cried in all my grief and pain
What a garden they grew, watered with human rain.
I sometimes can’t see beyond the moment, in hopeless
despair. But then your memory sustains me, in heartaches repair.
I can wait for the tomorrow, when my sorrows ease
Until then I’ll light this candle, and let my memories run free.
WE TRY TO REMEMBER ALL THE GOOD TIMES WE SHARED,
HOW MUCH YOU LOVED AND CARED.
I DOUBT THERE WILL BE A DAY THAT GOES BY,
THAT WE WILL NOT THINK OF YOU AND WONDER WHY.
WHY IT HAD TO BE YOU WHO WAS TAKEN AWAY,
WHEN WE WOULD HAVE TAKEN YOUR PLACE ANY DAY.
IT SEEMS SO LONELY SINCE YOU’VE BEEN GONE,
BUT WE UNDERSTAND THAT YOU’VE GONE HOME.
WE WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER YOU WITH LOVING GRACE, AND THINK OF YOU WITH A SMILING FACE.
I KNOW YOU ARE IN HEAVEN RIGHT NOW SMILING DOWN,
SO WE WILL TRY OUR BEST TO LAUGH AND NOT FROWN.
I’M SAD I WASN’T ABLE TO SAY
"I LOVE YOU" AND "GOODBYE"
EVEN IF YOU WERE UNABLE TO HEAR MY FINAL CRY.
I’LL THINK OF YOU WHEN I AM FEELING LONELY AND DEPRESSED AND MY TEARS WILL BE LAID TO REST.
MAY YOU ALWAYS BE IN MY HEART,
TILL THE END
BECAUSE YOU WERE THERE FROM THE START
You have inspired us in every aspect of our lives through your courage and strength. You were the best Mother anyone could have. You loved us, supported us and looked out for us, with a heart of gold you loved us all. You sure made your mark in this world, and it will continue.
You will never be forgotten.
God closed your eyes and took your hand, and left us to try and understand. Others were taken this we know, but you were ours and we loved you so. You will be in our thoughts every day, and in our hearts you will always stay
I said, "God, I hurt." And God said, "I know."
I said, "God, I cry a lot." And God said, "That is why I gave you tears."
I said, "God, I am so depressed." And God said, "That is why I gave you Sunshine."
I said, "God, life is so hard." And God said, "That is why I gave you loved ones."
I said, "God, my loved one died." And God said, "So did mine."
I said, "God, it is such a loss."
And God said," I saw mine nailed to a cross."
I said, "God, but your loved one lives."
And God said, "So does yours."
I said, "God, where is she now?"
And God said, "Mine is on My right and yours is in the Light."
I said, "God, it hurts." And God said, I know…………"
You never said I’m leaving
You never said goodbye
You were gone before I knew it
And only God knew why
A million times I’ve needed you
A million times I’ve cried
If love alone could have saved you
You never would have died
In life I loved you dearly
In death I love you still
In my heart you hold a place
Noone could ever fill
It broke my heart to lose you
But you didn’t go alone
For part of me went with you
The day God took you home.
