In loving memory our late friend, Mrs. Payne.

Tis sad to part with mother, 
with sister, wife and daughter;

But Oh! how sweet to know that some day 
we can meet, upon the golden street;

What rejoicing ther'll be, 
When in Heaven we shall meet;

Ther'll be no more sad parting,
No more sorrow ther'll be;

When we in Heaven meet, His Gift;

God thought to give the sweetest thing,
In his Almighty power;

To earth and deeply pondering
What it should be one hour;

In fondest joy and love of heart,
Outweighing every other;

He moved the gate of Heaven apart,
And gave to Earth, A 'Mother".

Both Believed to be from a Houston, Missouri newspaper
