In Memory of Our Mother.

Our Mother kept a garden

A garden of the heart,

She planted all the good things

That gave our lives their start.

She turned us to the sunshine

And encouraged us to dream,

Fostering and nurturing

The seeds of self-esteem…

And when the winds and rain came,

She protected us enough –

But not too much because she knew

We’d need to stand up strong and tough,

Her constant good example

Always taught us right from wrong –

Markers for our pathway

That will last a lifetime long.

We are our Mother’s Garden,

We are her legacy –

And we hope today she feels our love

We’ll forever cherish her memory.
