Our Mum

A light has left our lives today

No time to say goodbye

Remember her with joy and love

Then when you start to cry

Think of all the times she made you laugh

And always being there


We felt her pain she bore it well

How much there was, she wouldn't tell

Didn't want to worry  you

She kept it to herself


Nothing was too much trouble

You were not afraid to ask

Her help was freely given

She would not take you to task


Her life was just her family

The big ones and the small

She wondered in each tiny babe

You know she loved you all


We all will miss her in our way

I know she would have loved today

Seeing all her family in one place, enjoying every pretty face

Watching how you've grown


Sweet dreams dear mum

From all of us

Until we meet again

Your memory we will cherish
