Our Mother’s Garden
Our mother kept a garden,
A garden of the heart,
She planted all the good things
That gave our lives their start.
She turned us to the sunshine
And encouraged us to dream,
Fostering and nurturing
The seeds of self-esteem…
And when the winds and rain came,
She protected us enough—
But not too much because she knew
We’d need to stand up strong and tough.
Her constant good example
Always taught us right from wrong—
Markers for our pathway
That last a lifetime long.
We are our Mother’s garden.
We are her legacy—
And we hope today she feels the love
That will forever be.
