Poem For Mom

Mary Alice
Upon mirrors of time many fears and tears
Reveal graceful silhouettes of maternal care
Among stacks of clothes dishes and chores
Routine budgeting sewing cooking and more
Overwhelming emotion stewardship of love
Prayers offered in earnest toward heaven above

Her precious offspring adore her quirks
Mimicking laughs and expressions
Crime in Italy jumpin' Jehoshaphat tar-nation
Glory be hallelujah he flew the coop
Consumption of chili fresh bread and milk
All recapture memories of mother dearly beloved
