A TRIBUTE FOR MOTHER'S DAY (SUNDAY)
You were a mum in a million,
One with a heart of gold.
Your first priority was your family,
Your memory will never grow old.
Although your life was very tough,
You taught me right from wrong.
You set me a good example,
Your love made me strong.
I thank you for so many things,
You sacrificed for me.
Yes, life for you was very tough,
Dad died when I was three.
Throughout my life you were always there,
When I needed you.
Recently the roles were reversed
As I spent your last day with you.
As I sat and held your hand
As you passed from one life to another.
With tears in my eyes, I said my goodbyes
To a person I was proud to call mother.
