Weary with tears and pain;
Into sweet rest she has entered,
No more to sorrow again.
Over her bed the green grasses,
Soon will so lovingly creep;
Out ‘mid the daisies and clover,
Mother has fallen asleep.
Rest the worn now forever,
Dear wrinkled hands are so still;
Pulselesss is the heart that no longer
Sorrow can quicken or thrill.
Years will glide over her gently,
facing the shadow and deep;
Drive back the tears, would you wake her?
Mother has fallen asleep.
Oh, beautiful for the weary,
Beautiful rest for the true;
Laying so peacefully ever,
Under the sunlight and dew.
Floats through our hearts strings a
quiver, Like death a whisper so sweet;
He giveth to his beloved,
And mother has fallen asleep.
We desire to extend out thanks to all those friends, who extended a helping hand, during the sickness of our beloved mother, to H.L. Littleton for his efficient and kind method of conducting the funeral, to Rev. Laird, who officiated at funeral. Each and every one have our heartfelt thanks.
