Moms Day!

Holidays are quite the "breed"
promoting reasons to "toast" a day,

some of them we do not need
but, celebrate them...anyway.

This one, made for my dear Mom
shifts my memory into high gear,

if I remember right, when I am calm
I can remember every year!

She's been right there, everytime
fate's hurled at me, a curve,

we've celebrated time's, sublime
and times when I've lost my nerve.

Accompanied me, when I was, right
been there when I've been, wrong;

the former taught me to take things, light
the latter helped make me, strong.

She's been there for me, in the end
helped me sort through all the lies,

she has won my heart as my, Best Friend
some day, I hope to be as "wise"!
