Mama - Poem by Melissa Lawson

Mama, I loved her so.
She greets me each day, as I come and I go
The plant, it sits by my front door
Through life, through death it has been there
Reminding me, each day of life's struggles
But of the triumphs too
It has wilted to nothing
Become broken and torn
Brown were it's leave, not anymore
Green as the greenest sapphire it glows
Brown nevermore
