As I sat trying to think of what I might say about my wonderful mother,all I could think of was, if only I had one more day. So I wrote this for you mom:
For one more day
I would love to look at your beautiful blue eyes.
For one more day
I would love to sit by your side.
For one more day
I would love to hold your hand.
For one more day
I would love to hear your laugh.
For one more day
I would love to tell you I love you.
For one more day
I would love to have my mom
Just for one more day.

There are no words to explain the heartache I am feeling , the pain of losing you, the hole left in my soul that can never be filled. I am however so proud to be your daughter and so blessed to have had such amazing parents. I had you for 56 years and that in itself is amazing and a blessing. You fought the good fight and fought like a warrior. You always did. I get my strength from you. Your tiny feet made some BIG shoes to fill! I hope I continue to make you proud. Until we are reunited, I love always and forever, your daughter Holly
