Another year has passed us by,
And we still think of us up in the sky.
Our hearts are sad that the Lord called you home,
But we've come to realize that we're not alone.

But leaving your love is what you've done best.
So we thank you, Dear Mother,

Now sleep with peace, Dear Mother and may God Bless.
