Mum flashed by

Flashing of my life before my very eyes Where on earth did that go and oh what a surprise I see what life has given, I see what I have too But most of all what flashes by was my life with you My sweet and tender mother Just a five foot tiny wee thing So bold and full of loveliness I knelt within her wing So now as my life has flashed Flashed before my eyes I see how much I miss her And how much I do and did cry I think I was a good daughter I know I wanted to be But oh mum that time just flashed Just gone before I could even see So what I’m trying to say To say in almost the right way Is “that” life flashed from view The life I had with you Life flashes before your eyes contest Sponsor Matt Caliri 12th December 2021

Lovely tribute to your Mother Angela, I always find this time of year quite emotional as you look back and remember loved ones no longer with us. Tom
