M is for missing you.
O is for the only one.
T is for your tenderness.
H is for my heart, where you'll always be.
E is for ever you'll be my mom.
R is for the riches of having you for awhile.

------- Author's Notes -------

Nothin like a good mama

Hey Barb! I always love poems dedicated to the family. I don't know, but it's something special about them. When I read about a person and their kin having that unbreakable bond, it makes me cheese. I think that's wonderful when daughters and sons are close to their parents! Fabulous Barb, very!

Lovingly Respectful and so, Honest.

I understand that you wrote this for yourself yet, also for your Mom. We are all proud of this read and I'm sure your Mom smiled. Beautiful.
