    Wish I could see you Leah Ruth
    Be consumed by your love
    Enlightened by your truth
    Be hypnotized by you warm brown eyes
    From the rhythm in your voice, be mesmorized

    I never knew what a saint you were
    Never knew you touched so many
    I kept you selfishly
    Or so I thought
    Thinking I was the only one
    Who learned from the lessons you taught

    No one but me called you Leah Ruth
    I wonder why you let me
    Guess you knew it was supposed to be
    Like everything else
    You handled it lovingly...honestly

    Leah Ruth, of yourself you always gave
    It seemed like you never got your turn
    You never stifled my adventourous soul
    Your only requirement was that I love and learn

    I've learned alot and loved even more
    As I moved about from town to town
    And now in these delicate times with so much in balance
    With a smile on your face you would break it all down

    Leah Ruth
    You rest with the Father in eternal peace
    So deserving are you of his promised blessings

    You gave me life, you gave me freedom
    Naturally unique, there could never be another
    Like you Leah Ruth, my loving mother

    Happy Mother's Day
