A Mother's Garden

Happy Mother's Day

My Mother kept a garden, 
a garden of the heart,
She planted all the good things
that gave my life a start.

She turned me to the sunshine
and encouraged me to dream.
Fostering and nurturing
the seeds of self esteem.

And when the winds and rain came,
she protected me enough-
But not too much because she knew
I'd need to stand up strong and tough.

Her constant good example
always taught me right from wrong-
Markers for my pathway
that will last a lifetime long.

I am my Mother's garden.
I am her legacy-
And I hope she feels the love
reflected back from me.
