Legacy of Love
A wife, a mother, a meme too, this is the legacy we have from you.
You TAUGHT US LOVE and how to fight, you gave us strength, you gave us might.
A stronger person would be hard to find, and in your heart, you were ALWAYS KIND.
You fought for us all in one way or another, not just as a wife not just as a mother.
For all of you gave your best, now the time has come for you to rest.
So go in peace, you’ve earned your sleep, your love in our hearts we’ll eternally keep.
