Mom Will Never Be Far Away Not On Any Given Day (by Lynda Barlow)
Each moment we remember, through the laughter and the tears Are gifts that mom has given us, they’ll always be preciously dear. They will remain within our hearts, it’s what will let us know That our mom, and our God, will always love us so. Sit quietly a moment, do you hear a whisper – just listen… I believe that God will let you hear the voice that is now missing. Her strength, her love, her touch, always lovingly given, Will remain within each of us and help us keep on living.
