Treasured Memories (on Mother’s Day).
She has gone now, leaving us all alone
Sometimes I forget and pick up the phone
Ready to dial for our daily chat
A creature of habit, can’t help that
Suddenly, it hits like a blow
You catch your breath, then let go
Leaving an emptiness, a gaping hole
A loneliness in your heart and soul
Oh to hear her voice just once more
Or to see her walk through that door
Always a lady with her radiant smile
Elegant and graceful and oh such style
She has gone now, leaving only memories
Full of laughter and joy that please
While some can make you cry and weep
Those Treasured memories we will always keep.
