Oh dear me, Oh dearest Mother,

You have gone from here to there.
I know it was not of your choosing.
You’re right, it is was not fair.
We, family and friends, all losing.

I would have you very close
With moments of sharings.
My heart warms and glows
With memory of garage saleing.

I know you would rather be
Here with me and others too.
Our time together was the key.
My life improved because of you

My friends, yes, more than one.
Chats morning and evening.
They feel the nearness of their loved one.
Their words, the veil between them thinning.

Today, I share my dreams.
My thoughts, even my prayers.
You have heard me, it seems.
There will be no more tears

In my heart you reside
Beside me each day you walk
Continuing your role as a guide.
I listen and learn as we talk

Thank you my dear Mother
For the role model provided
Its leadership like no other
Do likewise, I have decided

Oh dear me, my dear Mother,
You changed my world.
