I Lay You To Rest Today - Poem by Maria Segura

I lay you to rest,
You, that always listened to my worries,
You that always knew of my dreams,
You that took me in as a little girl,
And turned me into, what now is me.

I called you mama,
That is what you were for me,
You took away many worries,
When I had those awful dreams,
My life was made pleasant,
And taught me so many things.

I learned to sew and cook,
I did all these things with you,
As a teenager with many changes,
You were able to guide me,
You knew about my first boyfriend,
You knew about my first kiss.

And, then I became a woman,
It was difficult for me,
always with your guidance,
It all became a breeze,
You were there when my children were born;
You were always there for me.

And now I lay you to rest,
With the Lord now you will be,
I will miss you very dearly,
Mama, I will miss you very much,
You my beautiful angel!
Forever will live in my heart.
