Tomorrow here in the UK we celebrate
Above is a photo of my mum on the left
with hsuband and mother-in-law.
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 was very hard for you.
Dad died when I was just three.
Throughout my life you were always there,
When I needed you.
The roles were reversed many years ago
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 lady I was proud to call mother.
