A Poem to Mother

From day one, you were there,
Doing all the work,
then stepping aside to let someone else take the glory.

I learned so many things from you,
I grew into a beautiful woman,
and gave my dad all the credit.

I adored my daddy,
Looked up to him,
Wanted to be just like him.

In hindsight,
It is you that I want to be like,
You are the strong woman that I patterned myself after. 

Thank you, Mom, for picking out my wedding dress! You have great tastes!

  1. I remember your parents. I loved them. You know, my family credits your Dad for being the Dr. that got my Mama (grandma) off of most of the pain pills to which she was hooked? Awesome.
