When I close my eyes, in the still of the night,
I can almost feel your arms wrapped around me so tight.
I can hear your voice whisper in my ear
"You're my precious baby and I'll always be near."
The pain I feel I can hardly comprehend
But the love you've given will help my heart to mend.
You have been my world, my hero, my mother.
You taught me to love myself and how to love others.
I thank God for every moment He gave us together
And for the memories we made that I'll cherish forever.
This is not our time for good-bye, instead "I'll see you again soon."
For you wait at Heaven's Gates to welcome me Home.
I rejoice to know you'll never again feel pain
And comfort in the knowledge that I'll be with you again.
Until that day comes I'll wait patiently
And dream of the day that your face I will see.
You are beautiful and amazing, a woman like no other,
And I am so blessed to call you my Mother.
