    You passed away from me
    Swallowed by the midnight sky
    Fading like the rays of the moon
    Oh how this loss came way too soon

    My heart swelled with pain
    And my tears ran like rain
    Anger, Hurt, Sadness and Fear
    Knowing in body you're no longer here

    My Dear Mother, Virtuous in EVERYTHING
    Earned the right to be called Queen, just by the light she would bring
    She taught me Strength, Peace, and Love
    Called home by God, now teaching Angels above

    How she raised me from a baby
    Discipline and Encouragement she always gave me
    Molding me into the woman I am today
    Reflection of HER beauty inside of me

    In my heart you will always live
    Through your memory you'll continue to give
    An everlasting Love that can NOT die
    So on with life we all will try

    Missing you so
    Trying to understand why
    To joy I'm trying to hold
    Even though I want to cry

    Asking God now, if my famiy He'd keep
    May he bless us now, while understanding we seek
    Holding to prayer and trust all the while
    Always and Forever will be My Mother's child


    For my sister, who's love and grace has truly touched this place.
    :heart:
