A Tribute to Our Mother 
The day God called you home, 
In tears we saw you sinking
And watched you fade away. 
Our hearts were broken, 
We wanted you to stay.
But when we saw you sleeping
So peaceful from pain, we were at ease.
It broke out hearts to lose you, 
But you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you,
The day God took you home.
We Love You Mom

God saw you
God saw you getting tired 
And a cure was not to be ...
So He put his arms around you
And whispered, “Come to Me.”
With tearful eyes we watched you 
And saw you pass away ...
And though we love you dearly,
We could not make you stay ...
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard-working hands were put to rest ... 
God broke our hearts to prove to us, 
He only takes the best.
