In laws

her own family
till death or eternity
home came the new bride

unsure and alone
mom-in-law takes a strong stand
history repeats

    * “Quite Interesting Opening Stanza * 'Till Death or Eternity' * Yet I Do See It Now * Dear Gifted & Beautiful Tahera. * Tis Now The Second Verse More Abstract Unto My Eyes * Smile * But Somehow I Find It All Very Lovely * Must Be Because It Was Brushed By Your Beauty * A Soft & Sweeet Poetess. * And I Love The Fact That Mom Is Standing Tall * Hugs & Kisses * Kisses & Hugs * Always & Forever * Sarah” *

    I hope your mother-in-law treats you well, Tahera. Wishing you success in Dr. Ram's contest! I have been wondering about your surgery. Have you had it yet? You're in my prayers. I've been having health problems too. Take care, sweetie. Love, Carolyn
