To My Dear Mum

Oh dear Mum, you did so well in your life,
Even coming through all life’s trials and strife.
I thank you for being my Mum,
No one could have done it better,
It is with happiness and sadness that I say these words,
You are now at peace with your soul and free from pain.

I cuddled you like you cuddled me when I was first born,
Role reversals did take place.
But oh dear Mum, I love you lots,
I hope you could see that in my face.
You have been so brave over the past few years,
And have always been there for me.
How you made me strong,
To cope and help with my own life’s agony.

Oh dear Mum, this seems so funny today,
I feel happiness with sadness all rolled into one,
That you have gone away.
Happiness with sadness all rolled into one makes this more easier,
More easier than writing a song.
I feel so proud of you dear Mum,
That I was your daughter and also your friend too.

May God bless you Mum in his world up above,
Which you now have arrived.
To meet all your loved ones since gone,
You can now be happy again and complete inside.

Oh dear Mum it is time for me to go,
My few words now seem to cease,
Or come to mind or even flow.
So it just leaves me to say,
God Bless you dear Mum,
May you now rest in peace,
May your spirit be free.
Come back to this old world once in a while,
As I still need your help in years to come,
To come and look after me!

To My Dear Mum
