Angel In Disguise

Her hands are pained and twisted Her eyes almost blind Her feet burning and crippled Yet she still has some of her mind. She use to be so lively And loving all the time Caring for her family And saving every dime She would work in her garden To feed us all year round Giving us all a pardon And never making a sound The clothes we wore Her hands did sew Filling every drawer Never letting us go without, even if what she had was few The beautiful smile upon her face Would brighten any room Like flowers in a vase She would take away the gloom Her life she spent giving love To all that crossed her path Putting everyone else above Even if they were filled with wrath But now her body is failing And it is hard to even move There are times she should be wailing Yet she still has something to prove Her hands are pained and twisted Her eyes almost blind Her feet burning and crippled Yet she still loves all mankind And when you gaze into her eyes And see her heart you realize She is more than just a mother in our lives She is an angel is disguise.

Connie thank you for such beautiful words. I did not enter this in the contest because it does not have the correct rhyming format. Your words mean a lot. It's a special poem for a special lady
