Tribute to my Mother

Tribute to my mother 
Nothing can compare to
 The great loss that I feel 
Nothing can compare 
To the love I had to give. 
I often think about the precious
 Smile on mother’s face 
And the motherly and daughterly
 Talk, that went on for days. 

She knew how much I love her,
 I could tell it in her voice, 
I could tell how much she loved me;
 I could feel it in my heart. 
Sometimes when I felt lonely
 Or even burden down 
All I had to do is think about her,
 And she would be around. 

Mother would take her gentle finger,
 And wipe the tears from my eyes 
The heavy burden was lifted,
 And I felt better inside. 
My dear sweet mother; even 
Though you are gone
I feel that you are free 
But your kindness and 
Courage will live on in me.
All the things you taught me,
 Are kept silently in my mind 
And it will keep me stronger
Each and every time 
Saying good-bye is something
 That has to be done 
Losing a mother is never easy,
 This I have learned. 

If you are looking down from 
Heaven and hear the words I say; 
Peace is still: 
My mother has gone away. 
No matter what words be spoken,
 On tomorrow or today 
My heart is broken,
 But I’ll love you anyway.
