A Mother’s Love is Forever
We can’t comprehend or fully realize
The meaning of our mother’s love,
How tender and how wise,
The patience and forgiveness
That are part of everyday
The unexpected “little things”
She does in her own way.
Years go by before we can
Look back on life and see
Through older eyes and wise hearts
Her love and loyalty,
And yet it’s these and other special things
We’ll hold so dear
For memories of her steadfast love
Will keep her ever near.
Esta vida são dois dias, Nao vale a pena chorar
É viver só de alegrias, Levar a vida a cantar.
We will love you always in our hearts as a Esposa,
Maé and Avo, Manuel, Cecilia, Anthony,
Tracie, Kailee, Isabel, Harold and
soon to be grandchild.
