Somewhere Over A Rainbow



A memorial carved in stone
Is all anyone can see
But no one on earth knows
How much the lady
Lying beneath this stone
Meant and still means to me.


When this dear lady died
Not only did I lose my Mother
I lost my best friend too
A friend like she was to me
I will never have another.


Somewhere over a rainbow
In a far away heavenly land
I believe with all my heart
One day God will allow me
To be with Mother again.


But for now:


A memorial carved in stone
Is all anyone can see
But no one on earth knows
How much the lady
Lying beneath this stone
Meant and still means to me.
