Eighty Something….

February 22nd, 2013 No Comments Tags: , , , , , ,

The years have come, the years have gone
The clouds rolled in, and the sun has shone

The pace of life, that ebb and flow
Makes you wonder where does time go?

A special milestone marks this day
As it’s my Mom’s 80th birthday day

Had a special time with her alone I confess
Being the youngest of 4 and last in the nest

We bonded together one-on-one
Was serious about her job as “Mom”

Taught us tough love through those tender years
To reach higher ground, of us she did rear

Those important lessons we have learned
Indelibly in our hearts and minds they’ve burned

Taught us not through words but by actions she’d do
The most valued to us all is that she is our glue

Love shown strongest when we break bread
At the family table, with love we’re fed

Fond memories linger in my mind
Over the past roads we trekked and together we bind

Lucky to witness what’s important and her special ways
That we’ll celebrate today her 80th birthday!
