Mothers, daughters,
And sisters, too,
Can win one’s heart
By what they do.

I’ll not forget
Mom’s love for me.
I count it as
Her legacy.

Daughters, sisters,
All passed the test.
I love each one,
But here’s the best –

Granddaughters, four,
That I can kiss,
And hold real close,
Now that’s true bliss.

The Deepest Love


Mom soothed my brow

And taught me how

To smile again,

When I was ten.


She held me close,

(Love’s tender dose),

When I was ill.

I feel it still.


When my turn came,

I did the same —

She needed care,

And I was there.


It’s meant to be,


Love’s legacy.

Our destiny.
