POEMS: “Precious words my momma said”

85c5b94cfebd6949fa8333387eb0a021

I remember, still remember
Though she’s lately gone ahead;
They still linger, always linger
Precious words my momma said.

Oft, she spoke of patience, virtue,
Peace and joy gained by giving;
She felt love, compassion, kindness
Paved the pathways of our living.

Her words were inspiration
When beset with storms and strife
And her poise and deep contentment,
Became the guideline for my life.

She led me through the darkest
To pursue a better day
And if those paths became too rough,
She would simply kneel and pray.

I’ll remember, long remember
Till I take my final bed;
Words of beauty, words of wisdom,
Words my dear, sweet momma said.
