Not the original title but useful here.

Had fate chosen a different path,

You would have known how I was proud

To know you and aspired to your creativity,

Our likenesses perhaps shared, with a love allowed


But no matter what has been denied us

Nothing can dispel your image from my mind

Nor the love from my heart


And, although destiny misplaced all

In a lifetime spent divided,

The dreams we have now can be perfect

Unblemished by pain and sorrow


So sleep my dear mother, sleep sound and know

That your unique spirit reaches deep within

And thrives in our future generations.
