I can’t quite remember when I first opened my eyes,

From that moment you were always by my side, mother of mine.

You held me when I was hungry, fed me as I drifted back to sleep,

Made me feel secure, washed me and made sure I was always clean.

When I woke from a scary dream it was you who took away my fearful screams,

You were there when I was down, near and always around, you were mom.

You taught me about the things that I should know, about the world as I would grow,

You were a friend, companion, but most of all, you were my mother, you were mom.

Memories I will never forget, I would trade them all for one more day, you went away,

I will see you again in a different kind of land, you were mom, thanks for all that you were.

  1. May her soul rest in peace. Tell your friend to stay strong. Where ever his mother is, mine is there to accompany her.
