Youve lived a life of joy and sorrow
And heartache, more than your fair share.
You always told me it would be alright tomorrow,
With a hug that was warm with a mothers care.
You had a habit of spoiling the people that you loved,
And made sure your girls never went without.
With others, you never put yourself above,
Your love for us was never in doubt.
As a sister, your bond was beautiful and close,
You shared an entire lifetime together.
A friendship surely to be envied by most,
There was no storm, that combined, you could not weather.
Definitely unique and so full of sass,
You taught me everything you knew.
Well all be together again soon, time goes so fast,
Every second mom please know, that I love you.
So when all is said and done,
Im only too proud to say.
My mother was an extraordinary woman,
And she lived her life, her way.
