Mother and Mentor: Berenice Abbott
Mothers are cool
unless your a fool...
They taught you not to drool
and find your way home from school!
They cared when you were uncaring
and pushed you forward
when you were not daring
They were there when Dad was done
and stopped you from
sucking your thumb
Sharing hugs n tears and lifes little tips
My Mother was always fun... for she said
Tulips are better than one!
This is for all those mothers,
who still live on through our memories
and whose words and fine wisdom
still ring true in our soul
They taught us to pray and the lead way .
