Hey there Lillian
You with your auburn hair
The wonder of my life 

You taught me some things
On how to conduct myself  
I looked to you in tough times 

Called out to you to save me 
More then a time or two
We had that connection
Yes"   I'm sure of it

More then a time or two
I made you laugh with joy
I'm sure I made you cry as well
It wasn't because I was trying to
Not because I didn't love you

I've always loved you 
I love you still
You were my golden butterfly  
Lillian -  my mother

    A very lovely tribute to your mother, Debbie…and to motherhood. I am pleased to say my mother (age 92!) is among those I call friend. Wasn't always that way.

    I am very glad you had that connection with your mother.(smile) I didn't have that before but now I do. I love my mother too. Dio

    Is she gone on that trip from which there is no return? I wrote a poem about my father which is on the web - it is called "Paul's Gone". If you want to - take a look at it. Peace & Love Matthew Anish
