five minute friday :: mom

should-2-600x600

We’re so happy you’re still with us
Mother dearest to all of us
We cannot say thank you enough
For all the things you’ve done for us

We may be in different places
We’re so happy you’re still with us
We treasure you with all our hearts
The centre core of our beings

It’s not long now when we’re all there
Looking forward to be with you
We’re so happy you’re still with us
We’ll all have great fun that’s for sure

Sending you our love on this day
Kisses and hugs from all of us
Stay beautiful and cheerful, Mom
We’re so happy you’re still with us*
