In my beginning I knew I was blessed,
by this woman who held me in her arms.
She cares so much, holding me close to chest,
so loved, and safe am I, from worldly harms.
I grew and grew learning to hear her heart,
with her knowledge, she taught me many things
I learned of language, mathematics and art
Now I see the world with the eye’s of kings.
On a journey as I prepare my way
her treasured words of wisdom still remain
Used remembered lessons to guide my day
Life continues to grow never to refrain.
Looking back on a fulfilled lifelong prize
Each day and year continue to surprise.
