Her favorite poems “If” by Rudyard Kipling and Desiderata by Max Ehrmann
Softly in the morning,
You heard a gentle call,
You took the hand God offered you,
And quietly left us all,
The day you left us mom,
Our hearts just broke in two,
The smallest part is still with us,
And the biggest part with you.
For the rest of our lives,
We’ll miss you mom,
Our tender tears still flow,
Just how deeply you are loved,
All will forever know.
We miss the twinkle in your eyes,
And your tender ways,
We miss your sweet sweet smile,
And the things you used to say,
And when old times we do recall,
That’s when we”ll miss you most of all.
You were always there when we needed you,
No task too great or small,
With a loving heart and willing hands,
For us you did it all.
Look around your garden Lord,
And when she turns and smiles,
Put your arms around her,
And hold her for a while.
