V56: She never failed to do her best…
She never failed to do her best,
Her heart was true and tender,
She worked and toiled
for those she loved,
And left them to remember.
We sat beside your bedside
Our hearts were crushed and sore.
We did our duty to the end
‘Til we could do no more.
In tears we watched you sinking
We watched you fade away,
And though our hearts were breaking
We knew you could not stay.
You left behind some aching hearts
That loved you most sincere.
We never shall and never will
Forget you Mother dear.
