Saying Goodbye To Mama

The passing of a mother is the hardest thing to bear.
All your life you thought that mama would be there.
And if you had a problem or just needed a big hug.
You knew you could depend on her undying love.

So saying goodbye to your mother is not an easy thing.
I think that it's the biggest heartache that live can ever bring.
But if you'll just remember the love in your mama's eyes.
You will come to realize that a mother's love could never die.

The things that she has taught you stays locked inside your soul.
And memories my friend, are worth more than any gold.
So just remember her in all you say and do,
And I promise you, she will always be with you.

Dedicated to Mary Osborne in memory of  her mother: Dorothy. Bailey.

Sweet Sister Bailey


Sweet sister Bailey, you have an angel by your side.
And when you feel pain, the angel cries.
She's there by your bedside, as much as she can be.
She's holding your hand, even when you don't see.

She's sending out prayers to the Father above.
Asking Him to wrap you in His holy love.
She's a nurse and a friend and an angel all in one.
Sent down to you by God's only son.

So rest Sister Bailey, for without a doubt
The Lord in heaven has it all worked out.

Written for Dorothy Bailey during her illness.
