She gave us life and showed us love
Taught us about God above
Wiped our tears when we cried
In her, we could always confide
She hurt when we did, maybe more
Helped us decide when we wasn't sure
Cheered us on without quitting
She's was our grace in every instance
Our biggest supporter no matter what
Loved us completely and to a fault
When we think of her we think of home
When we think of her we do not feel alone
