Taught

taught

Taught by my Mom, to love

to appreciate the smallest gift

of nature and God

to decorate a home with flowers

bring guests in to rooms

filled with happiness

never gloom.

How to accept failure

knowing I could always try again

to always carry compassion

on my sleeve

to give with my heart

everything

for nothing on earth acquired

is going with me.

To know when to be silent

to speak out

to think before leaping

leave no room for doubt

to always voice concern

for as she said

life is different at every turn.

To always be aware of

moments and cherish friendships

to remember little things

truly last

for life she said

shall pass

so beautifully surrounded by

love.
