A Mother’s love is Eternal

The one thing I learnt very early in life
The importance of a Mum & Dad
The love of a Happy Family
Tho’ riches we never had
And as I read the words you wrote
It all quickly came back to me
For the hands of time keep rushing by
But it is easy for me to see
That you are now faced with the sadness
Of the loss of a Mum so dear
Who cherished and fed and loved you all
And shared many a laugh and a tear
When young she clothed and fed you all
And bathed your wounds when you fell and bled
Comforted you all when you were worried
And tucked you up safely in bed
She knew the meals you loved to eat
And the clothes you were keen to wear
Encouraged you with your education & sport
All part of a loving Mother’s care
With Dad as a partner to all of these chores
As a Family you work as a team
Living life for Happiness
Your success in life was your Mother’s dream
She saw you through the rough and the smooth
Sometimes with an aching heart
But then like a bolt from the blue it happens
Sadness causes the tears to start
And as with us all the loss of a loved one
Leaves us empty and full of sorrow
But know they would want us to be strong
And face the world tomorrow
For no-one can remove those wonderful memories
Sacred to you and your Family tho’ you sleep
As a Mother’s love is eternal
And her Heavenly watch on you she’ll evermore keep
