Even though you're no longer here
there's always room in my thoughts for you,
that ever caring person you were
so patient and kind,
when I needed someone to wipe my tears
to my rescue you always came,
gave me hope when life seemed down
nursed me when I was ill.
Now I'm grown old I heed your words
advice you freely gave,
for deep inside you're still with me
my very dearest Mum.
