Or even pause to wonder if the petals fall too soon
But every life that ever forms or ever comes to be
Touches the world in some small way for all eternity

Some time has passed since that fateful day,
when Gaea swooped in and took you away.
Another hard year of troubles and strife,
It’s been hard to keep going with work and life.
Sometimes I need you here for a hug,
till we meet again, in the skies above.
I miss you mum with each passing day,
and know you are watching in your own special way.
I love you mum always and forever
Your loving family, we shall forget you never
