God's Garden 

God looked around his garden,
And found an empty place,
He then looked down upon the earth,
And saw Mum's tired face.

He put his arms around her,
And lifted her to rest,
God’s garden must be beautiful,
He always takes the best Mum's.

He saw the road was getting rough,
And the hills were hard to climb,
So he closed her weary eyelids,
And whispered “Peace be thine”.

It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you didn’t go alone,
For part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.

A Million Tears

A bouquet of beautiful memories,
Sprayed with a million tears,
Wishing God could have spared Mum,
If just for a few more years.

It does not take a special day,
For us to think of you,
Each Mass we hear, each prayer we say,
Is offered up to you Mum.

We cannot bring the old days back,
When we were all together,
The family chain is broken now,
But memories live forever.

It was a sudden parting,
Too bitter to forget,
Only those who loved you,
Are the ones who will never forget.

Mother With A Heart Of Gold

We lost a mother with a heart of gold
How much we miss her can never be told,
She shared our troubles and helped us along
If we follow her footsteps,
We will never go wrong.

We miss you from your fireside chair
Your loving smile and gentle air,
Your vacant place no one can fill
We miss you mother and always will.

She was a mother so very rare
Content in her home and always there,
On earth she toiled, in heaven she rests
God bless you mother, you were the best.

Each time we look at your picture
You seem to smile and say,
Don’t be sad but courage take
And love each other for my own sake.

Mum's Gentle Face

Mum's gentle face and patient smile.
With sadness we recall,
You had a kindly word for each
And died beloved by all.

The voice is mute and stilled the heart
That loved us well and true,
Ah, bitter was the trial to part
From one so good as you.

You are not a forgotten loved one
Nor will you ever be,
As long as life and memory last
We will remember Mum.

We miss you Mum, our hearts are sore
As time goes by we miss you more,
Your loving smile, your gentle face
No one can fill your vacant place.

Mum's Journey

Don’t think of Mum as gone away
her journey’s just begun,
life holds so many facets
this earth is only one.

Just think of Mum as resting
from the sorrow and the tears,
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years.

Think how she must be wishing
that we could know today,
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.

And think of her as living
in the hearts of those she touched,
for nothing loved is ever lost
and she was loved so much.

He Only Takes The Best

God saw Mum getting tired
And a cure was not to be,
So he put his arms around her,
And whispered "Come to me".

With tearful eyes we watched,
And saw her pass away.
Although we loved her dearly,
We could not make her stay.

Her golden heart stopped beating,
Hardworking hands at rest,
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best Mum's.

Tears For Mum

You can shed tears 
That Mum is gone,
Or you can smile 
Because she has lived.

You can close your eyes 
And pray that Mum will come back,
Or you can open your eyes 
And see she has left.

Your heart can be empty
Because you can’t see her,
Or you can be full
Of the love you shared.

You can turn your back on tomorrow
And live yesterday
Or you can be happy for tomorrow
Because of yesterday.

You can remember Mum
And only that she’s gone,
Or you can cherish her memory
And let it live on.

You can cry and close your mind,
Be empty and turn your back,
Or you can do what she’d want,
Smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

Mother Toiled

Mother toiled so hard for those she loved.
Said goodbye to none,
Her spirit flew before we knew,
When her work on earth was done.

We miss Mother now, our hearts are sore,
As time goes by we miss her more.
Her loving smile and gentle face:
No one can fill your vacant place.

Your life was love and labour.
Your love for your family true.
You did the best for all of us.
We will always remember you.

Mother Never Failed 

Mother's heart was true and tender,
She worked and toiled
For those she loved,
And left them to remember.
We sat beside our Mother's bedside
Our hearts were crushed and sore.
We did our duty to the end
‘Til we could do no more.
In tears we watched you sinking
We watched you fade away,
And though our hearts were breaking
We knew you could not stay.
You left behind some aching hearts
That loved you most sincere.
We never shall and never will
Forget a Mother so dear.

We Sat Beside Mum

We sat beside Mum's bedside
Our hearts were crushed and sore;
We did our duty to the end,
‘Til we could do no more.

In tears we watched Mum sinking,
We watched her fade away,
And though our hearts were breaking
We knew you could not stay.

Mum left behind some aching hearts,
That loved you most sincere.
We never shall and never will
Forget one so dear.

For many years the family chain
Was closely linked together,
But oh! that chain is broken now,
The main link gone forever.

One Mother

You can only have one mother,
Patient, kind and true,
No other friend in all the world,
Will be the same to you.

When other friends forsake you,
To mother you will return,
For all her loving kindness,
She asks nothing in return.

As we look upon her picture,
Sweet memories we recall,
Of a face so full of sunshine,
And a smile for one and all.

Sweet Jesus take this message,
To our dear mother up above,
Tell her how we miss her,
And give her all our love.

Roses For Mother

If Roses grow in Heaven,
Lord please pick a bunch for me
Place them in my Mother’s arms
And tell her they’re from me
Tell her I love her and miss her
And when she turns to smile
Place a kiss upon her cheek
And hold her for awhile
Because remembering her is easy,
I do it every day
But there’s an ache within my heart
Because I am missing her today…
