You’ll never forget your mother’s face

the sound of her voice,

the gentleness of her touch…

they let you know you were loved.

You’ll never forget the stories she told,

the traditions she handed down…

they let you know who you are.

You’ll never forget the lessons she taught,

the things she stood for…

they are her gift and your legacy.

You’ll never forget,

And you’ll always know

that you honour her every day

in how you live and who you are.
