A Tribute
Precious memories seem to surface
When the day is done.
Memories of days gone by,
Of battles lost and won.
Memories of growing up
where Mother taught and sang,
Stories of childhood
Songs where laughter rang.
Thank you, Mother for those memories,
Priceless and sincere.
Memories we will always cherish
Love we hold most dear.
