Tribute: Prologue


I lost my life's anchor at six
when mommy got sick and died
memories of her
were too quickly eclipsed
when by desperate need
my search began
for that love
only mothers provide.

Scant five months postmortem
pragmatic, engineer father
determined to solve
our motherless problem
married a pretty, blond divorcee
with five kids of her own
dearly she loved her progeny
with little affection shown
for my two sisters and me
