You left us too quickly, In the blink of an eye

I wish I could bring you back God knows that I’d try

You treated me like your own Whether I was hungry or without a bed

All the good seeds you’d sewn I remember all the things you said

You taught me about caring And taught me of love

Just do your best, and listen to the man above

For he was the one that put you in my life

My heart is in pieces, please pull out this knife

Tell me it’s a dream, Nightmare, or some other

You made a place for me When others wouldn’t bother

You never judged me, Or looked down your nose

You really loved me The choice that you chose

All the shows I’ve seen Talking about mother in law’s

I thank God for sending Me the best one of all
