A birthday tribute to a loving mother

Florence Elaine Gunawardena

By Your ever sorrowing daughter

I remember everything about you, amma,
Your voice, your smile, your touch,
The way you walked, the way you talked,
The way you nurtured me, meant so much.
I remember the words of wisdom you said to me,
That I use on life’s roadway
All the things you did for me,
I remember them on your birthday

You are gone from me now,
But one they can't take away,
Your memory resides inside my heart,
And lights up my darkest days...
