Onward, like a soldier,
Never ceasing for anyone,
Leaving us only with memories,
Of a time which seemed so much easier.
My mind continues to dwell on the words,
Which seem to haunt me.
It is as though your spirit never leaves,
Throughout my life your lessons stay,
With my every lasting faith.
I know that I will never be alone.
Like a watchful and loving mother,
Through my diligent prayer,
There will always be hope,
For a new day and renewing life.
