A wife, a mother, a grandma too
This is the legacy we have from you
You taught us love and how to fight
You gave us strength, you gave us might
A stronger person would be hard to find
And in your heart, you were always kind
You fought for us all in one way or another
Not just as a wife not just as a mother
For all of us you gave your best
Now the time has come for you to rest
So go in peace you’ve earned your sleep
Your love in our hearts, we’ll eternally keep
