Their Mother

Dignity, strength, patience, truth, and grace
Mark all the days from two times birthing pain
To guiding those whose fate it is to face
Adulthood’s obstacles. The challenge: train

Them in the skills to master all they meet
With savvy, tact, and humor. As they grow
Into young women, theirs will be complete
Confidence, the product of the long, slow,

And thorough upbringing that she knew
Would bear fruit that comes with maturity.
It isn’t accident that this sweet two
Reflect values she holds dear. You see,

It isn’t teaching. Rather, being kind
Sticks. Role modeling was the grand design
