You can only have one mother
Patient kind and true;
No other friend in all the world
Will be the same to you.
As we look upon her picture
Loving memories we recall.
Of a face so full of sunshine
And a smile for one and all.
Sweet Jesus take this message
To mother up above,
Tell her how we miss her
And give her all our love.
