Oh Mother, Mine - Poem by Irene Therese Xavier

Oh Mother, mine,
Beside your grave I reminisce and pine
For happy days that I once knew
Until the day you passed away.

Full of patience and so good,
You were the example of motherhood;
Endowed with God's gift of love,
You imparted it to all of us.

Also the sweetest, dearest Mother
To my sisters and my brother,
You brought laughter to our hearts
And sunshine into our home.

Oh Mother, mine,
Upon my knees
I join my hands and pray
That you may rest in peace.
