When I was a child you held me in your loving arms,
fed me, changed me, and kept me from harm.
As I grew you taught me your many ways,
to cook and clean, to sew, dance and sing
just like you, mother so dear, dear Emma J.
You showed me how to reach for the stars
so when the time came I could fly free and far.
Over the years, we laughed, cried and played
and took time to smell the roses along the way.
Strong, determined, full of dreams and goals,
a tool in God’s hand that touched my soul.
Sharing her Love, her Hope and her Faith,
waiting to meet me again someday at Heaven’s Gate.
