Memories of mom

                     MEMORIES OF MOM
The years have passed but memories stay.
        My memories of you will never go away.
I'll never forget your dark brown hair.
        In cascade curls and a french rolled flair.
Wearing black slacks and a man's white shirt.
         Never wore a dress or even a skirt.
She was a good mom and a terrific cook.
         Before bedtime she'd read from the good book.
We never had much but mom done her best.
          She was never lonely and never had a empty nest.
Our mom loved her children with all she had.
           She taught us well cause she was our mom and dad.
Her children love and miss her with all their hearts.
            We'll hold our memories from the end to the start.
                                  Teresa Skyles           08-Aug-11
