God made many lovely things
Sunsets and flowers and trees
Birds and starlight and loyal friends
And after he made all these
He gave another gift more rare
More loving and more true
A wonderful person most fair
A mother as dear as you.

The world will change from year to year. Our lives from day to day, but the love and memory of you shall never pass away.
