My mother kept a garden,

a garden of the heart.

She planted all the good things,

that gave my life its start.

 

She turned me to the sunshine,

and encouraged me to dream;

fostering and nurturing

the seeds of self- esteem.

 

Her constant good example

always taught me right from wrong-

markers for my pathway

that will last a lifetime long.

 

I am my mother's garden,

I am her legacy-

And I hope today she feels the love

reflected back from me.
