When a mother breathes our last farwell, 
The stroke means more than tongue can tell;
The world seems quite another place,
Without the smile of our mother’s face.

What is home without a mother?
All things this world may end;
But when we lost our mother
We lost our dearest friend.
Surrounded by friends, we are lonesome!
In the midst of my joys we are blue;
With a smile on our face we’ve a heartache,
Longing, dear mother, for you.

The flowers we placed upon your grave
May wither and decay,
But love for you who sleep beneath
Will never fade away.
