The following poem we say to our Mother:
If tears could build a stairway,
and memories were a lane,
We would walk right up to heaven
and bring you back again.
No farewell words were spoken,
no time to say goodbye,
You were gone before we knew it,
and only God knows why.
Our hearts ache in sadness,
and many tears will flow.
What is meant to lose you,
no one can ever know.
But now we know you want us,
to mourn for you no more,
To remember all the happy times,
life still has much in store.
Since you’ll never be forgotten,
we pledge to you today,
A hallowed place within our hearts,
is where you’ll always stay.
