My Mother!!! - Poem by Lauretta E. Pelton
I gaze upon that mountain--
etched in yonder sky of blue.
My thoughts now quickly wonder-
towards loving thoughts or you.
Great memories race by me-
strong emotions well up high--
I cannot hold or squelch them--
I wipe a teardrop from my eye.
Yes, your life had many hurdles--
like steep mountains to be climbed
With courage you approached them,
conquering all- one at a time.
I see you on that mountain-
glowing victory on you face;
Your eyes are beaming upward--
at the goal of your lifelong race.
Your profile on the mountain top-
inspires me as no other.
Such beauty strength and vigor--
I have found in only you--
