Two years ago today
We said our last goodbyes,
You did not know that you were sick
Nor  could you see tears in our eyes. 

Though sorrow came and lived its course,
We rose above our mortality,
our hearts tho sad,  show no remorse
because we loved you in totality.

Even if we could choose,
In some miraculous way,
To find another Mother…
None would be as fair to us,
Nor loved with so much fervour.

You were honored and adored
A Mom to be proud of for sure.
If we did not know how to please you,
It was our loss and never yours.

We hope you are happy for us too,
As you look down from above.
Lovingly guiding us, your smile beaming,
And missing us with Mothers love
Forever and eternally.
