A Poem on Mum's 2nd Anniversary


Your smile was so precious,
Your words wisdom to me,
Your look so loving...
All would agree.

Your memory I treasure
So warm was your embrace,
I close my eyes and cherish
Your gentle, loving face.

Thank you Mum for everything,
You have always held the key
To love and life and all good things
You've ever done for me.

I hear your voice in the whisper
Of a soft wind, gentle and free,
Your words caressing my mind
As you lovingly hug me.

You were unique and blessed
With God's blessings so true,
I thank Him now and forever, as
For my Mum He chose...You!
