So Proud


Will not leave without a fight
told you along time ago, life's
worth all the struggle handed
on that green silver platter.

My children, you'll never know
the joy you have brought me
fifty-nine years.

Through our fight, we have never
forgot how hard it was. still we all
keep the links together, they'll
never break, as long as we keep
them strong with togetherness
prayer and love.

Every day takes care of itself
as the wind blows through the
tree of life.

Beauty grows deeper within all
your hearts, as I watch you grow
wise and strong.

No words can touch a soul,
as your actions have touched
mine with pride.

A parent's fondest dream is
to see there children happy
learning, growing each day
what may come.

Our ship remains afloat through
years of hardship and strife, never
saw a ship so worn, yet it shines
with grace.

Dedicated to my six grown children
(Five sons and a daughter)
