Mother's Day

Mom wants to laugh with your laughing
And Cry with your tears
Her heart sings with one's singing
And Dies with your fears
She wants to Love in children's loving
And feel anger at your anger towards others
For after all mothers are part of you
Both in Nature and Nurtured whomever.

And whenever I think of her
Or find her in my heart
I give her a great big hug
Even though she's departed

For I can still remember her face, her smile
And I can still be thankful for being her child
And friend, and companion, AND...
Asset according to Dad.  He told me that.
But I would laugh, and sing, and dance
With my mom's memory still loving
And still warm in my hug.
