A Tribute To The World's Greatest Mom

You never said "I'm leaving"

You never said goodbye

You were gone before I knew it,

And only God knew why

A million times I needed you,

A million times I cried

If Love alone could have saved you,

You never would have died

In Life I loved you dearly,

In death I love you still

In my heart you hold a place,

That no one could ever fill

It broke my heart to lose you,

But you didn't go alone

For part of me went with you,

The day God took you home.

Four long years and I miss you more each day. I am so blessed to have belonged to you. I've always been and will remain so very proud of you. So many things you taught me, even those lessons that I pretended to ignore. Every day I strive to be the kind of mother to my daughter that you were to me. Thank you so much for the gifts you gave. I love you Mom.
