Aching limbs that would not go,
yet you carried a smile that never said no.
An inspiration to everyone you met.
There was a quality about you,
no one could forget.
In your company, laughter always came.
We are sure there are moments that
will never be the same.
But this is not how you would see it.
You would want the laughter to carry on,
to remember good times and maybe a song.
Although this is so hard to do,
without someone who was as special as you.
So with the tools you gave us,
we will be strong.
Look after each other, never leaving it too long.
Good night Mum, wherever you may be.
We will always love you,
