I came to live with you
Around the age of three
Before this I have no memory
Of how life was for me

I loved the life you gave me
Full of fun and laughter and glee
Two holidays each year to enjoy
T'was a happy life for me

Two loving arms to run to
When life did get me down
Always an ear to listen
When I wore my little frown

Music drifted out the room
On week-ends you did play
Your faithful tunes to listen to
To while the time away

Many hours in the day
Time went o' so slow
Time to live our happy lives
A warm, contented glow

And now I sit, reflect awhile
On years so long ago
Thinking back to many times
Playing in the snow

It seems a different life-time ago
When you were on the earth
The many happy memories
The joys of giving birth

The life you left so long ago
To move to higher plains
To join the angels in the sky
You life our Lord did claim

To move you away to better things
Heaven's gain when you claimed your wings...
