Remembering Mom

The lessons you taught –

To students, family and others.

Your hands were never idle, and neither was your mind.

Oh, my Mom!

Your life was long and productive, but yet

It still seems too short.

I am thankful you stood on faith,

And with that your life is eternally blessed and beautiful.

Today, as I come to terms with the fact you have left this realm,

I am enormously grateful for you.

You will continue to inspire me for as long as I live.

Thank you for all of the lessons you taught me.

You, and they will not be forgotten.
