Assuredly I struggled
in the days when I was young
not knowing at the time
lifeís education had begun

My mother taught respect
compassion and responsibility
her influence invaluable
precious, her gift of sensibility

Strong in her convictions
as I rarely followed rules
learning from mistakes
she provided the tools

Never passing judgement
loved with her whole heart
a trait I did acquire
coveted now that weíre apart

Losing her when young
tragic watching her go
truly grateful for her life
teaching me everything I know

It is her that guides me now
when feeling lost and afraid
always sensing her presence
at times when Iím dismayed

Thoughts of who would save me
knowing she has gone
yet still in the directors chair
her insights carry on

Her wisdom does remain
lessons I learned in youth
belief Iíll save myself
she afforded me this truth
