My daughter wrote this for me - and I thought others may like it too.


The one who stands tall

With shoulders held high.

Wearing the bald

With a gleam in their eye.

The one who looks deeply

In the eyes of their kids;

Clings to them tightly

And kisses their lids.

The one who sits crying

With hands to their head

Cursing, then sighing,

Then praying to mend.

The one who is lost

And unable to scream

For in counting the cost

They're unable to dream.

The one who finds peace

In the breaking of dawn.

The one who finds comfort

In the words of a song.

Each faced a day

Of unspeakable strain.

Each found a way

To deal with the pain.

Each should be praised,

Held high in esteem.

They've run the gauntlet

And still look serene.

So I take my moms hand

And take each step as it comes.

I walk when she walks

And run when she runs.

The ending unwritten;

The tale still spins...

And pray at the end

It's she - who will win.

Hi Sue,

I don't think I ever welcome you here. You daughter is such an inspiration here.

She posted that poem back in November. Thanks for sharing with us again, it is beautiful and says so much..

You must be so proud of Missy, she is a wonderful caring daughter who loves you so much.

I hope you are doing well and I pray you have a great holiday with all your family members.
