Dedication to my mother

You taught us to be content with what we had
To choose to be happy and not sad
We were rich in love and mercy
There was no such thing as I, you or me
We were all one, living in unity
Your love we tested, twisted and tried
The more we pulled and tugged
The more it grew wide
Your love and compassion never once failed
There is no question as to how we prevailed
