Happy Mother's Day is here once more
But on this special day, I softly mourn
For my mother is home with the angels
Where her heart has been re-born.

I try to keep my brightest smile
For those around to know,
But deep inside there's a little cry
For I miss my mother so.

I'd love to sit again and hold her hand
As I am lonesome for her all the while
But I'm also glad for her to be in Heaven
Restored with her sweet smile.

I know God took here when His time was right
So no more suffering she would see,
The burdens of her mother heart
Are gone eternally.

How I cherish all the special ways
She poured forth of her tender love,
Giving selflessly, dear Mom, now resting
Rewarded in her Lord above.

Dear Mother mine, I may be sad today
Missing the one that I adore,
But one day soon we'll be together
Close, just like we were before.
