Farwell Dear Mother

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 the 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 that 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.
