    I miss you and think of you everyday
    I wish you hadn't left us that way
    Everything you told me was true
    The older I get, the more I'm like you
    My Mama's love cannot be replaced
    Her smile, her laugh, her beautiful face
    She was funny, witty, loved to dance and sing
    But if you messed with her children,
    A change in her demeanor that would bring
    Mama taught is to be aware, to think for ourselves
    To walk walk tall, to be proud
    Never worship material things and wealth
    I'm raising her grand children and now I see
    Why Mama chose the lessons that she taught me.......​

    Oh, Miss LadyLC! Reading this got me a little misty for my mama!

    The lessons they gave us do come back, don't they! I can hear mine saying, "Just keep living and you'll see."

    But, your poem is such a poignant, beautiful tribute to the woman who nurtured and shaped you and you are further honoring her by passing on her legacy to your children. :bowdown:

    That's what it's all about, aint it?
