You brought me into this world

Much alone I know

It was a struggle to provide house and home

You did your best with what you had

Focusing on what’s ahead

You worked hard always sharing and caring

Accepting what you didn’t have

In my life the good character

I received from you

the bad from pretty much an unknown dad

Your card asked not to weep or cry.

That was easy for you to say but

I’ll think of you every day

I watched you die gazing into the sky

Unaware if you knew I was there

Your struggle has now come to an end

My dearest friend and mother

Your Son.
