They say that time will heal the wounds
From losing you - I hope its soon.
They say that we will meet again
I hope its not too long till then.
I'm glad your pain is finally gone
It was your time for moving on.
You fought for us, you did your best.
Now finally, you get to rest.
Of all the things I've left unsaid,
Only one sticks in my head.
So I'll say it now for all to hear,
In hopes that somehow you are near.
Thank you for the times
You took us to the park,
And played "monster" with us,
Until almost dark.
Thank you for the fishing trips,
So we could be together,
And teaching us to build a fort,
In case of nasty weather.
Thank you for snow ice cream,
And pine cone fights and when
You kissed away all the hurts
That happened now and then.
Thanks for being "Granny Hag"
On Halloween so often,
And making Christmas mean so much,
It could never be forgotten.
Thanks for showing us
How to laugh and play,
And taking time for the moments,
That mean so much today.
Although our tears are many
Since you have been gone,
Our hearts are full of memories,
In which you will live on.
For the sacrifices you made,
And the joy our memories bring,
We love you so much mom:
Thanks for everything.
