Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could see,
Our dear mom as she used to be?
Wouldn't it be wonderful to see her smile,
And have her back for a little while?
Could we be wrong for wanting her so?
When the angels wanted her too?
Could we be wrong for missing her so,
And all the things we used to do?
No-we wouldn't disturb her peaceful rest,
For we know above all that God knows best So,
He called her to His home on high But,
We'll miss our Mom,
Everyday that goes by.
Soon, together again we will be,
Together for eternity
We Miss You! Love,
Children, Grandchildren, Great-grandchildren
