As I remember with tears running down my face,
how seventeen years ago today, you lost your fight.
You lost your battle with cancer,
and slipped peacefully away to a better place.
Although it was filled with so much sadness for us,
we were happy for you to be out of pain.
You always lived your life for others
Trying to help them as much as possible.
To people you met you were always kind and caring.
The type to never hurt anyone.
For your family you were always there no matter what,
Supporting, cheering, being our chauffeur, and doctoring us when needed.
You were the one that made our childhood house into a home,
And held our family together.
Your spirit lives on in my thoughts and memories,
And no one will ever replace you in my heart.
Because I love you and you are forever my Mum..
