Promises Made to My Mama: OctPoWriMo, Day 15

Mother, may I never forget your wise sayings,

Keeping them in my heart to rule my thoughts.

You told me that respect is earned, not a given,

And been hired doesn’t mean I have been bought.

Mother, may I never forget how you loved me,

Reminding me that I am the head and not the tail.

You made sure that I understood the difference,

So I would be proud of myself, without fail.

Mother, may I never forget how you lived,

Trusting in the Son, remaining ever steadfast.

No matter what trials and tribulations came,

You said to me, “Sweetie, this, too, will pass!”

Mother, may I imitate you more each passing day,

Your strength in adversity made me feel secure.

And because you never wavered in your faith,

My own problems I learned to patiently endure.
