We have only your memory, dear mother,
To remember our whole lives thru’
But the sweetness will linger forever
As we treasure the image of you.
We mourn for you dear mother,
But not with outward show.
For the heart that mourns sincerely,
Mourns silently and low.
Only a prayer that is tender,
Earnest deep and true.
But it comes from the heart, dear mother,
While thinking of you.
