A Birthday Thought

You were always the kind of mother
That mothers should always be.
You gave love and protection
To each of my siblings and me.
Your voice was always a quiet one,
Never used in a shout or rage,
But we knew when you gently scolded,
It was time we should act our age.
You sang with a lovely lilt,
-I remember one special song-
That you sang once in the moonlight
As we kids all tagged along.
You gave us our days of innocence,
We had freedom to ramble and roam,
Free from the world’s grimy influence,
Going about, but always coming back home.
Today is your birth anniversary,
And though you’ve been gone a long time.
I’m honoring all that you taught us,
In the words of this memory rhyme.
Effy
