Thank-You Ruth

She holds herself,

with so much pride.

the joys of her youth,

memories never set aside.

The tender way she touches you,

as a reader,

poet and friend.

She listens with her true heart,

and speaks with a wisdom,

earned only by living.

She is the essecence of a mother,

one who understands,

her children are after all,

human, and prone to mistakes.

Lucky are those who have shared her life,

blessed be those who stay.

for there is always a place,

for a touch of the human factor,

and a story or two,

to brighten your day.
