In the shadows of grief, my heart does weep,

For my mother, who now rests in eternal sleep.

Her presence lingers in the memories so dear,

A love that will endure, forever sincere.

Her love, a beacon that will never fade,

A bond unbroken, even in the darkest shade.

Though tears may fall, and sorrow may reside,

Her love remains a constant source of pride.

In my heart, her legacy will forever shine,

A mother's love, an eternal lifeline.
