You can be a rich person but you are the poorest in the land if you don't have your beloved mother to clasp your hand.
Her smile is gone forever, her hands will bake no more, still we have such sweet memories of the one we loved so much.
These memories are in our keeping so we'll never be apart.
God has her in His kingdom, but we have her in our hearts.
So you, who have a mother, cherish her with care, for you will never know the heartache until she is no longer there.
