Our mothers left this earth, and all her family too,
Keep this in mind, as I explain it to you.
Her cooking will forever be the fragrance of your soul
The wisdom she shared you will always hold.
Her beauty, her smile, her love for life
will be your survival in times of strife.
As the breezes flow, and the ocean roars
her spirit will always be at our doors.
Every flower you plant, every song you sing
Mom sees and hears those treasures you bring
Know it, believe it, cuddle this truth.
The woman who bore us, who felt us within
knows our souls melded, conceives we are kin,
she will NEVER forsake us, no matter what realm she's in.
