Good night Dear Mamma, Mamma my love,
Farewell for now; forever fare well;
You’ve run your race; finished your course,
The storms of suffering have met their quell.
The sun has set; your day has closed,
A new dawn breaks beyond;
Earthly ties severed; toils e’er ended,
Left behind are memories fond.
Heartache, hurt, tears for us left behind,
Long road ahead to work through the grief;
But for you loving mamma, mamma my love,
From your labour, load, lassitude eternal relief.
I don’t know the number of tears you shed;
But Jesus does; He’s kept a count;
They no longer matter, for not another will fall,
As you drink evermore from joy’s fount.
Sam, I and the boys could not be there,
When death’s shadows began to close;
We didn’t get to say or kiss you goodbye,
The tyranny of distance only heaven fully knows.
Though you no longer can hear this,
We appreciate all you’ve done thru the years;
For the words of comfort, courage and care,
For both the overt and covert tears.
I’ll never forget the times you went with less,
So that your children could have a little more;
Your many sacrifices made, often unknown,
So that we more blessings could “score”.
My sons’ daily prayers for Ma will change,
As you no longer need their intercession;
But time will never erase you from their hearts,
As they through life make their progression.
Good night dear Mamma, Mamma my love,
Forever rest in your Saviours arms;
Perfect peace, unending joy,
Away from life’s harassments and harms.
One day we’ll again meet; On that distant shore,
One day the broken circle will be whole;
Till then goodbye, Dear Mamma, Godspeed,
Rest in Jesus, Rest In Peace, Dear Soul.
