A Bouquet of beautiful memories,

Sprayed with a million tears,

Wishing God could have spared you,

If just for a few more years.

We love you, we miss you and though this life is over, we know you have received your butterfly wings, flying high, flying free.

Looking over us, hearing our plea,

We love you Mom,

fly, fly, fly free.
