Treasure Island

Lawerence Mize, Sr.

(October 29,1949 / Baltimore, Maryland)

A Woman's Gift


A woman gives
all of her life
Nurtures and cares
puts things to right

She gives up her soul
Thinks not of herself
Takes on all burdens
Gives it her best

The touch of her hand
in a moment of need
A parting kiss
blown on a gentle breeze

Little things
she says and does
All for the people
the lucky ones she loves

The gift of herself
is worth more than any precious metal or stone
With her in your heart
you are never alone
