An Ode To My Mother

Poem by Johnny J. Hollis III

I can not count the ways you have cared for me,
I can never repay you for the love you shared with me,
I can never forget the wisdom uttered from your lips,
I can never forget the wondrous works of your fingertips.

I can never forget the sweetness of your tears,
I can not forget how you helped me fight my fears,
I can never regret any time I spent with you,
You taught me that my dreams can come true.

I shall never allow my love for you to cease,
In your voice I find comfort and peace,
I shall always remember your bedtime stories and lullabies,
I shall see love forever in my mother's eyes.
