A darkness, rolling, like the sea
Then a faint ray of light shone over me.
Sent from God, from up above
I could feel her warm, undying love.
He made her skin a silky pale
And her gentle hands both strong and frail.
Brown hair reached her shoulders with a flowing grace
Then the Lord put a smile on her loving face.
My mother, a blessing that I was given
I thank the Lord for this gift from heaven.
