Flower Gardens East Bank Sunset Pictures, Images and Photos

Mom you spoke of
So much love
I heard your voice breaking
As the leaves were shaking

Long ago everything was in its prime
The ending of a time
You said they took my old car away
Yes, they took it today

Mom you only
Becoming lonely
Getting older
Weight on your shoulders

My heart goes out to you
Time now due
You're going to move away
You'll stay

With family and others
You said my brother
Isn't coming home
No more will he roam

Mom I'm still often crying
You enduring dad and brother's dying
Legacies, traditions that memories bring
Years of accumulating things

Glory will come to you in the morn
As surely as your four children were born
Mom it is you that I love
You like a peaceful dove

Will rise up and take flight
Loving us all morning, noon, and night
Dad in his eminent voice
Saying you're making a wise choice

Dad would agree
For we all see
You've held on strong and long
One day you'll sing a heavenly song

It's true
Dad is waiting for you
The two of you in perfect unity
Together forever through all eternity
