Grief be mine, I ask you so,
If not for you, I wouldn't know,
How life once was and then be still,
How so precious, that death do steal.
Because that grief, won't go away,
Learn to let it have its way.
The link to love, a precious one,
Is met with grief and still not done.
The days do come, and nights do go,
Grief will stay as time is so.
And so a loved one passes on,
And grief comes in and carries on.
Does grief get better, I will ask,
It's hard to say, while at its task.
There is grief to help us cope,
There is God to give us hope.
Grief will surely go away,
On that glorious heaven's day.
But while its here, there's just one thing,
Pray our Lord, for peace he'll bring.

And the days went on, and the weeks and the months
And the years, and the mother grew old and she was little and bent.
But her children were tall and strong, and walked with courage.
And when the way was rough, they lifted her, for she was as light as a feather; and at last they
came to a hill, and beyond they could see a shining road and golden
gates flung wide.

And mother said, "I have reached the end of my journey.
And now I know the end is better than the beginning, for my children can walk alone, and their children after them."

And the children said, "You will always walk with us,
Mother, even when you have gone through the gates."
And they stood and watched her as she went on
alone, and the gates closed after her. And they said: "We cannot see her
but she is with us still. A Mother like ours is more
than a memory. She is a living presence......."

Your Mother is always with you.... She's the whisper
of the leaves as you walk down the street; she's the
smell of bleach in your freshly laundered socks; she's the cool hand
on your brow when you're not well. Your Mother lives
inside your laughter. And she's crystallized in every
tear drop.

She's the place you came from, your first home; and
she's the map you follow with every step you take.
She's your first love and your first heartbreak, and nothing on earth can
separate you.
Not time, not space... not even death!
