Many years ago I lost a friend...
memories of her will never end !
All the times we spent together
are now etched in my mind forever !
It wasn't perfect all the time...
yet our relationship was prime !
Mother and daughter through the years,
wiping away each other's tears !
Celebrating when times were good...
getting together whenever we could,
for shopping sprees and lunches too.
Through all those times our closeness grew !
From the cradle she mothered me;
it was impossible then to see
that Mother Nature had a plan
to change things from how they began !
In her final days roles were changed
for the future was prearranged !
Now Mom relied upon my care...
it was time for me to do my share.
Mom became a child again
and I took on the role of "Mother Hen" !
It wasn't easy playing the part
but the love was from heart to heart !
