Goodbye our dear mam
our tears do flow like rain
you seem so far away
and yet so near the same
farewell our dear mam
until we meet again.

The body an empty shell
a mother steps into the light
dad, family past, and friends
waiting for the unite
no more the devil’s curse…
of death having to fight.

To suffer the most
our hearts ripped out
when will they mend?
one day…no doubt
but not very soon
a light has gone out.

Death has no sting,
as Paul the apostle said
you left behind
sad thoughts in our head
we cared for you here
now God cares for the dead.

We know you are well
and not far away
a place full of peace
is where you will stay
waiting…together again
on that wonderful day.

You gave us your love
your blessings as well
sweet memories you left
to take us from hell
our happiness will grow
for in paradise you dwell.

Don’t know if we can endure
all the heartache and pain
but when the day comes
all sadness will wane.
Goodbye our dear Mam
’til we all meet again.
