How do you say good bye
for my mom
You've been sick for quite a while
yet for me you still always smile.
You lost your voice that dreadfull day
yet for me I understand all that you say.
You fought with courage for what was in store
yet for me I learn a whole lot more.
You taught me not to worry about tomorrow
after all I am a Tondreau!
The woman in this family
stand for their strength and generosity.
When faced with strife, worry or grief,
know this, it's usually brief.
You have raised me to be sassy and smart
a gift from you that came from the heart.
You loved me hard and tough some time,
But you always had my best interest in mind.
But now my heart is filled with sorrow,
for soon we won't have anymore tomorrow's.
How will I ever say good bye to you?
This i don't think I'll be able to do.
But it is not for me to decide
for now I will sit her at your side.
I will stroke your hair and caress your face,
until god takes you from this place.
I'll tell you I will see you again some day,
these are the only words I can bring myself to say.
