Since you've Been Gone
Since You Been Gone our lives are not the same
But somehow we've managed, to carry on your name
Many times we've picked up the phone
Often forgetting you're in your heavenly home
We thank you for your unconditional love
God kept us close, and tight as a glove
Many times you open your home to others
and they too became our sisters and brothers.
Holidays are hard without you
Now, we're forced to think about, a thing or two.
We know your spirit is still here
And with Seeking God, there's no fear
You always taught us to love one another.
Because in this life, it would only be one mother.
So many times the devil thought he had you.
But, God had a plan, that no one knew.
Losing you crushed us all
But, God, faith, and courage, substained our fall.
Your Love is stored within our hearts
and we would cherish it, as we depart
If we had just one more thing to say.
Mother we promised to stick together, and pray.
This is our mother's story and she will forever be missed .
Love Your children
