Airport Farewells

The last time I saw my mother
I waved her goodbye, kissed her farewell
Entering the airport, she went on her way
Flying out the land, and out my life

The last time I saw my mother-in-law
Was at an airport, kissing her farewell
Stepping on a plane, she went on her way
Returning back home, and leaving my life

My mother, and my mother-in-law
Two blessed women who gave unselfishly
I never often said thank you
For all the love they showed to me

So these few words are dedicated to them
To give thanks, and to say thank you
For the nurturing, comfort and care –
You are in my heart, we are never apart
