Tribute to Mum

A few lines penned very quickly one day, that might do for a memorial card verse



Here no more? Too hard to believe;

The smile, the voice, the care worn hands;

A thousand kindnesses performed;

Things only a mother understands.


Love in action, your only stance;

Rarely pausing for a moment’s rest;

Free from pain and anxiety now;

Take your place among the blest.


Our love for you has never died,

Or your love for us either.

What more proof of life eternal?

Great gift of a divine provider.


Till we meet again as meet we will,

May your memory bless us so:

To mind that our true home awaits,

With God, with you – let it be so!
