“O” means only that she’s growing old,
“T” is for the tears she shed to save me,
“H” is for her heart of purest gold;
“E” is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
“R” means right, and right she’ll always be,
Put them all together, they spell “MOTHER,”
A word that means the world to me.

Awake in the morning, at three forty five
She stumbles awake, barely alive.
Why would she choose to go down this path?
Is this what she wanted, when she’s looking back?
The answer is money, as it always is
She’s got to scrape it together, and support her two kids.
She walks a path she’s never dreamed of pursuing
So far from her dreams, what she wants to be doing
So far from a vet, her childhood dream,
Now she’s winding motors, working with machines.
It’s not a path of her choosing, but she does what she can
To find happiness in this job, to make a new plan
There’s always something, a new complication
It’s one shred of happiness, a small inspiration.
It keeps her thinking, so her mind’s not a waste,
Not everyone could work in this place.
If there was one thing she would change, to better her station,
She would go to college, and pursue education.
She still loves her children; she want’s them to dream
This leads me to what she thinks I should be.
She thinks I’d do great, in the healthcare profession
For my problem solving skills, and my compassion,
I just hope she knows, what keeps me alive
Gets up every morning, at three forty five……

My Mother kept a garden,
a garden of the heart,
She planted all the good things
that gave my life it’s start.
She turned me to the sunshine
and encouraged me to dream,
Fostering and nurturing
the seeds of self-esteem…
And when the winds and rain came,
she protected me enough-
But not too much because she knew
I’d need to stand up strong and tough.
Her constant good example
always taught me right from wrong-
Markers for my pathway
that will last a lifetime long.
I am my Mother’s garden.
I am her legacy-
And I hope today she feels the love
reflected back from me
