Ode to My Mom

47  years

47 million tears

47 reasons

Why we hold you so dear

47 chapters

47 thousand moments captured

47 little lanterns

Hanging from the rafters

1971

When your life had just begun

Did you know

47 years later you’d have

2 daughters and 1 son

2 grands

To hold hands

5 foreheads to kiss

47 hundred I love yous

From 2 brothers and a sis

47 years of mom

Only 43 of dad

470 moments

You claimed were the best

You’d ever had

47 hugs

Wrapped around you close

47 blessings

That you deserve the most.
