Oh, how I miss you, your wonderful smile.
Your hand so gentle, I haven't felt for awhile.
You gave of yourself, you calmed all my fears.
You held me as I trembled, you dried all my tears.
Now what can I give you? What should have been done?
No chance for that now, for now you are gone.
I regret there's no time left, so much more left to do.
And that I had only a lifetime to love a Mother like you.
