So true, though also is this
Liars can figure

Inherited Traits

John had his mom’s eyes
Inherited her kindness --
Keen sense of humor
Sweet sister-in-law
They shared love for animals --
She and I still close
Never met father
John tried to avoid his fate --
Died young like his dad

---no room in the bed

ma was really fat
son shamed at the sight of her
her sunny joy boy

new daughter loves her
puddgy cheeks and cannolies 
sucker made daily

marriage ends badly
sonny boy runs to mama
no room in the bed

many in-laws fill space with joy.
Some take more than give.

Lovelier Than A Rose

Oh lovely rose song
Pressed in that book for so long
Music can't be wrong

Memories that stay
always recurring array
Learning how to pray

Thoughts engraved so deep
Everlasting pure, keep
Reminding of love

Oh that lovely rose
Pressed in that book that was closed
She lovingly chose

Memories that say
True love won't take her away
Momma I miss you

good mother-in-law
reluctantly steps away
taking second place

she will be happy
if his new wife loves her son
half so much as she

new daughter-in-law
