Mother and Daughter
My mother and I were never weak.
But we also were not unique.
She was a woman, and I was a child.
We always made people smile.
They look so much alike, people would say.
How I wished it was not her time to go away.
I enjoyed all types of music.
She enjoyed old country tonic.
I never let her disabilities get her down.
She always encouraged me not to back down.
