You taught me how to be a mother,
Leading me with pudgy toddler fingers,
And questions about questions about questions.
You made it easy.
I did not know how
To give of myself,
But you knew how to find my love
And take what I then gave gladly.
You led the way,
Your love helped my love grow
I didn’t think I could.
Now I think perhaps I can.
Because of you.
