If I Would Have Only Known...
A Mother's Love
If I would have known that your time was near,
I would have told you how much I cared
If I would have known the sacrifices you gave,
I would have tried harder your life to save
.If I would have known the lives you touched,
You would have known I loved you so much.
If I would have known the source of your grace,
I would have known it was a reflection of His face.
If I would have known your love for others,
I would have known that you were the greatest of mothers
If I could just have one more moment to spend,
I would have let you know that to our love there is no end.
For your memory is etched deep within my heart,
Your love for me I should never part.
I think of you when I wake in the morning and lay to sleep,
I still pray the prayer you taught for my soul the Lord should keep.
Your gift in life was bringing out a person’s best,
It’s now up to us to do the rest.
I miss you now, as I miss you then
,I will look forward to the time with there is no end
And though we are no longer to be,
There will come a time when we shall share eternity.
There death will no longer have its sting,
We will be in the Savior’s presence to sing.
