Poem: Mother...You are Strong

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.


You are strong
there is no struggle
you can not face
your health will not keep you down.

Focus on the positive
Vision only good thoughts
you have much to accomplish
this temporary set back
will soon be a distant memory.

I am here
to remind you
how to use your strength
each step of the way.

To help you overcome
moments of despair
showing you love
In a way
only a daughter can.
