WE ALL LOVE OUR CHILDREN OUR FATHERS AND MOTHERS  
WE ALSO LOVE OUR PETS AND ONE ANOTHER,
  
GRANDMAS AND GRANDPAS ARE ADDED IN TOO
HUSBANDS AND WIVES ARE IN THE MIX WITH YOU.

BUT SOMETIMES THAT STILL ISN'T ENOUGH,
THERE'S THINGS LIKE CRAFTS AND OTHER STUFF.

SKATING AND SINGING ARE JUST A FEW
OF SOME OF THE THINGS I USED TO DO

I TOOK UP PAINTING, JUST LIKE MY DAD
AND FOUND OUT IT WAS THE MOST FUN I HAD.

BUT SINCE I NO LONGER CAN HOLD A BRUSH
THE KNOWLEDGE OF THAT MADE MY HOPES CRUSH

I'VE TURNED TO MY PRE-TEEN SUMMER WAYS
AND DUG OUT MY POEMS FROM THOSE EARLY DAYS

IT SEEMS MY CHILDREN NEVER KNEW,
THAT WRITING POEMS IS WHAT I USED TO DO.

IT TURNS OUT MY SON TERRY,WRITES POETRY TOO
AND ENCOURAGED ME TO JOIN UP WITH YOU.

I CANT TELL YOU HOW MUCH IT'S MEANT TO ME,
TO BE WELCOMED BY YOU SO LOVINGLY

IT GOT ME STARTED WRITING AGAIN
ON THE LAP-TOP NOT BY SHAKEY HAND

I MAY NOT ALWAYS LIVE UP TO YOUR PRAISE
BUT I HOPE I KEEP WRITING TO THE END OF MY DAYS.

THANK YOU ALL SO VERY MUCH, LOVE

I FOUND THIS POEM IN MY MOTHER'S FOLDER WITH HER POEMS
THAT SHE HAD WRITTEN IN 2009 AND IT WASN'T ON HER POETRY
SITE HERE ANY LONGER AS SHE HAD LOSS A FEW OF HER POEMS
WHEN HER OLD COMPUTER HAD CRASHED A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO
AND I DECIDED TO REPOST IT ON HER SITE AGAIN AS A WAY OF
HONORING HER AND HER LOVE FOR HER MANY FRIENDS SHE CAME
TO KNOW HERE AT POETRYPOEM.COM AND THANKING ALL OF YOU.
