Mother, Thy Work is Done

We shall miss you, sadly, mother,

Miss you in the morning light,

Miss you in the starry evening

Miss you in the quiet night.

But we know you’re gently resting,

From your duties here below,

And we feel that you’ll be waiting

When we’re called upon to go.

You’ll be waiting for your loved ones,

From your home beyond the sky

Through the sunset or the twilight,

In the near Sweet By and By.

..................Sadly missed by her Children.
