Your face is always on my mind Mom,
Your beautiful smile I have seen a gazillion times,
Two lovely eyes that would light up a night sky,
It is almost unbearable that I couldn't defeat this final battle for you,
Our day together was 63 years long, and night has come,
And I so so wish it hadn't, and I'll miss you until it's my nightfall.

Love you and your memories forever;

Bonnie Carmichael
