Holy Bible, King James Version

To bottom:
So Long Mother!

I have wondered how motherless people deal with life.
How do they make it through a Mother's Day alone?
Where do they stuff all the stress and strife?
Who do they get advice from daily on the telephone?

Well now I know how it feels to live without my mother.
I can't describe how deep the hollow hole feels deep inside of me.
There is no one in the world to take her place not even a twin sister or brother.
But I rest in knowing she is not gone forever and I will one day again her see.

I know God called my mother to be with Him.
He knew her aged body could not endure  earth down here.
He knows Mom is now perfect, a glorious and majestic gem
But I know He felt my sorrow and I know He saw my tears.

But now I will rest in peace without her near.
I will keep the faith she taught me to hold on to.
I will be strong and I will not walk in fear
For one day I too will walk those streets in glory as all God's Mother's Do!

So long Mom, keep that smile for all to see.
Please know that I love and miss you.
Have the angels to watch over me.
Enjoy the  joys of heaven like all God's Mother's Do!
