We did not know that morning
What sorrow the day would bring,
The bitter grief, the shock severe
To part with one we loved so dear.
You bid no one a last farewell,
No chance to say good-bye,
You were gone, Mom, before we knew it
And God only knows why.
We pray that when you left us,
That you knew how much we cared,
Today, tomorrow, our whole lives through,
We will always love and cherish memories of you.
We hold you close within our hearts,
And there you will remain,
You walk with us throughout our lives
Until we meet again.
