To my family and friends

If this is my farewell send

I know that you will be sad

Just think of the good times that we had

I know sometimes I felt like a crutch

But I loved you all so very much


Home Again

To my family and my friends

Listen to my farewell send

As memories flow

And tears are cried

The good thoughts flow

Inside your mind

Now listen well my fam and friends

I’ll see you in the stars again

We felt your love as you told us goodbye

As we knelt beside you and watched with a mourning sigh.

No more words and no more breath

Just the memories is all we have left.

We tried to be strong to help keep you calm

Not realizing that you were the strong one all along.

Our hearts break and our souls are sad

But knowing you are playing now makes us glad.

You fought so hard and suffered so long

But now you have the strength to dance to your favorite song.

                                                     Love Always, Mom
