    Mother
    I just couldn't allow this system to have it their way,
    to honor and give love, cause it's how and what they say.
    Got to box my love up for one day out the year?
    hold back the fact that I feel you near?

    I may not have said it every single day of the year
    but with the wisdom you have, you knew it was there!
    every chance I have, I kneel and I pray...
    you have earned that respect 24 hours a day

    I'm so proud of Makeda, she showers me with love,
    she's one of the angel's that drop from above.
    Mom I wished that I had a little more time with you,
    and I wish you could see, how your granddaughter grew.
    We are sending our unconditional love your way
    and know we deeply miss you...with each passing day.​

    This was a very nice piece Tswana....I hope you gone pay up that $20.00 she got from me before she departed??? Surely your Mom would have wanted it this way. (smiles)

    For all that our moms mean to us, one day of the year to give them gratitude...just scratches the surface. Your mom somehow can feel your words, and beams down with pride upon you and Makeda.
