A tribute to my mum from the depth of my heart.
For you, i gladly thank the lord cause you're the best mum and wife anyone could ever ask for. Mum you were a special gift from God, so much beauty, grace, love and patience you possessed. Mother, you heard God's whisper calling u home, you didn't want to leave us, you loved us so much that you held on tight until all your strength was gone and you could no longer hold on. You slipped away quietly without telling me goodbye. I closed my eyes for just one second and you were gone! Now my heart aches and breaks, my eyes leak and my soul mourn. It didn't seem possible to take the next breath but i realize today that i am surviving your death, some days are hard when weakened with sorrow but remembering you inspires me to face my tomorrow. Mum i still miss the sound of your voice, the wisdom in your advice, the stories of your life you always told me, your jokes and our gossip and trust me they were next to none and it pains me there won't be no one to share all those our juicy gist with. Mum i celebrate you cause you lived a life enviable enough for emulation. You were so generous to the extent that i even got mad when you had to give at your own expense. The manner in which you loved daddy was epic, i just couldn't explain and i hope God gives us the strength to love our spouses more than the way you loved our dad. As for your grandkids, Lizzy, Ivie and Danny, I'll tell them how much of a super woman you were and they'll ever be grateful to God for giving them such a wonderful grandma.
Lord if roses grow in Heaven, please pick a bunch for me and place them in my mother's arms, tell her i love her and miss her and when she turns to smile cause i know she would definitely, hold her for awhile because remembering her is easy, i do it Everyday but there's a ache in my heart that'll never go away. Mum, forever is a long time but you can be sure you will live in my heart forever.
Your last born
