Your face may have been graying
And the time nearing thin,
But your smile is still so bright,
In spite of your fight.
Your body was weary
But your mind crystal clear.
Your heart so strong and loving,
You always wanted me near.
You never gave up for a moment,
Always so courageous and brave.
Your spirit independent,
determined and strong,
And every ounce of trust and love
You so freely gave.
I'll love you and miss you
'Til my own final day.
It's been a true honor
To walk with you each day.
My very BEST friend.
I will ALWAYS be your Mama and You'll always be my 'Baby' Coop
