As children, we can’t comprehend or fully realize
the meaning of our
how tender and how wise,
The patience and forgiveness
that are part of every day,
The unexpected “little things”
she does in her own way.
Years go by before we can
look back on life and see
Through older eyes and wiser hearts
her love and loyalty,
And yet it’s these and other special things
we’ll hold so dear,
For memories of her steadfast love will keep her ever near.
