Dear Mother, rest, your work is o'er
Your loving hands shall toil no more,
No more your gentle eyes shall weep,
Rest, dear Mother, gently sleep.
Always ready to do her best,
With a heart so true and tender,
She devoted her life to those she loved,
And those she loved remember.
Tears in place of wishes,
Heartaches mixed with love,
No happy birthday wishes,
No cards to Mother with love.
Those who have a Mother,
cherish her with care,
For you never know the heartache,
Till you see her vacant chair.
A Mother's love is ageless,
A crown she has won,
Today I mourn and honour her,
For all that she has done.
Two extra stars are in the skies,
I know they are my mother's eyes,
Looking down upon her fold,
Remembering memories wrapped in gold.
We love and miss you Mum,
We wish you were here today,
Just to say these words to you,
We love you in every way.
We never ask for miracles,
But today just one would do,
To see our front door open,
And our dearest Mum walk through.
To those who have a Mum,
Love her while you may,
Because we wish with all our hearts,
Our Mum was here today.
No one knew the pain she bore,
Beneath the smile she always wore,
A loving memory dearer than gold,
of a Mother whose worth can never be told.
There's a corner in our hearts, Mum
You visit every day,
It gives us this warm feeling,
That you're never far away.
Now at rest Mam, free from pain
You're with my Dad now
When I think of happy times,
I always think of you Mum,
It's nice to think of happy times,
For every time I do
My heart is filled with all the love
That I feel for you.
You felt so very lonely Mum,
ever since Dad died
But you can walk together now,
forever side by side.
Kind was your nature,
True were your ways
We will treasure your memory Mum
For the rest of our days.
Mum, did the sun shine brighter,
or was the sky a deeper blue
Or was it just a different world
when we shared our lives with you.
Forever is a long time
This we know is true
But that's how long our broken hearts
Will love and yearn for you.
We think of you so often Mum
And every time we do
You can be sure we're thinking
Of yesterday and you.
Family ties are lasting bonds,
That are woven in each heart
To keep a family close in thought
Together or apart,
Love you forever Mother, forget you never.
Mother: I held you in my arms Mum,
I held you close to me
God took you to a better place
And left your love with me.
Age will not dim her loving face
Her sparkling eyes and happy face
She fell asleep and left me sad
I will never forget the Mother I had.
M is for the Many things she gave me
O is Only that she was growing old
T is for the Tears she often shed for me
H is for her Heart as pure as gold
E is for her Eyes that shone so brightly
R is for the many Riches she gave to me
Put them altogether they spell MOTHER,
The dearest one in all the world to me.
You've chosen an angel,
There's no finer than
For God in your wisdom,
You've chosen our Nan.
In memory's page, I will never blot,
Three little words-forget me not.
Never forget you Nan.
