Maudlin and melancholy draped mother’s form. 
Anxiety a constant companion, two girls she bore.
Xylem, the would-he part, came last, more pain  
In birthing her only son; she fulfilled her part.
None could say she wasn’t a good wife for the wanderer.
Eternity holds her now, she’s gone, my mother dear.
