WE LOST A MOTHER WITH A HEART OF GOLD
We lost a mother with a heart of gold:
How much we miss her can never be told.
She shared our troubles and helped us along;
If we follow in her footsteps
We will never go wrong.
She was a mother so very rare,
Content in her home and always there.
On earth, she toiled; in Heaven, she rests:
God bless you Mother,
You were one of the best.
We miss you from your fireside chair,
Your loving smile and gentle air,
Your vacant place no-one can fill:
We miss you Mother and always will.
Each time we look at your picture
You seem to smile and say,
“Don’t be sad, but courage take,
And love each other for my sake.”
Our loving thoughts of you, dear Mother
End not in memories that pass;
On Mary’s beads we plead your needs
And in the Holy Mass.
