A mother to all our hearts most dear,
Long shall we bathe thy memory with a tear
Farewell, no longer on earth to dwell,
Fondest of mothers, farewell, farewell.
My rest is in Heaven, no rest had I here;
Then why should you murmur, my children so dear,
Then dry up those tears, the worst that could come
But shortened my journey and hastened me home.
In Loving Memory
MARY ANN PEARSON
