Mom really wants me to share the poem I had engraved on the plaque for her. Silly Mom, it is not a well-written poem, and I’m embarrassed to share it, but she loves it, and says that it still brings tears to her eyes when she thinks of it. Although I had the poem engraved when I was 14, I actually wrote it when I was 12, so please forgive the lack of any resemblance to real poetry. Here it is:
To My Dearest Mother….
Mom reminds me of a dove,
she always gives so much love.
She runs such a pure and innocent life,
my father says she’s a very good wife.
She treats me with tender loving care,
everyone says we’re a perfect pair!
I do my best to make her happy,
I try hard not to be too sappy.
I look up to her as if she’s a cloud,
of me I hope she’s very proud!
She’s hardly ever mad,
because I’m rarely bad,
’cause I hate to see her sad.
She sings like a bird,
beauty in every word.
She glows like the sun,
’cause she’s number one!
