Tribute: Solution

Premature death denied
innate need to provide
maternal love, temporal direction
helping her children
love themselves
learn to express their affection
finally, teach them self sufficiency
although severed earthly connection
mother managed the tasks from heaven
placing good women along my path
with precise intuitive frequency
thus she still mothers by proxy

Jan and Cecilia
angelic nurturers sent first
mothers of good friends
while reaching adolescence worst
when living with family
came to forced end
these ladies opened heart and home
saved my soul from being alone

Gene, my wise, compassionate,
dad-vetted, landlady
In whose house I rented a room
shew much patience
through brief rebellions bloom
my days of experimentation
for one day while she was working
In her living room I smoked
four cigars, without ventilation
thus curing my desire for smoking

Tíwas Madeleine
who put me back
on the straight and narrow
I met her at the hardware store
where we were both employed
a feisty little middle-aged lady
whom when we first met
she seemed rather annoyed
we shared the same faith
we soon discovered
It was then she became
my surrogate mother
Influencing course correction
Instilling a sense of great worth
providing to me the vision
that helped me make
life changing decisions

Bless my motherís team of great women
without whom Iím not sure Iíd be living
