A gentle wind blew cross the land
Reaching out to take a hand
For on the winds the angels came
Calling out a mother's name.
Left behind, the children's tears
Loving memories of the years
Of joy and love, a life well spent
And now to God, a mother's sent.
With saddened heart, a child's farewell
Regrets of love, forgot to tell
Mother's whispers from above
"Twas not words, that showed your love."
As flesh departs, deep sorrow's pain
But mother's love shall e'er remain
Inside each child a mother lives
For of herself, a mother gives.
On angel's wings, a heavenly flight
The journey home, towards the light
To those who weep, a life is gone
But in God's love, 'tis but the dawn.
