Farewell to a great woman.
Somewhere in my heart beneath all the pain,
theres a smile I will wear when I hear your name.
I call her Mom, my best friend, my unconditional love.
I know she had to leave to be free from all the pain.
and nothing will ever be the same.
Now shes an angel, to watch me from above.
To guide me and advise me and know that I’m still loved.
I have so many memories of her throughout the years
Now shes gone and I can’t hold back the tears.
The day she left it broke my heart in two.
No one could ever replace her, for this I surely knew
And now the time has come I have to say farewell.
I want to thank you mom for raising me so well.
For your constant support and endless love.
I’ll remember all you’ve taught me, and make you proud of me.
