Mom Poem





Allow me to share a few thoughts about a special lady named Mary
She was well known for remaining calm even when things got scary
Being the oldest of five children she was like a mom before becoming a wife
While she was peaceful, she fought hard when needed to make things right
When Peter walked into the Howard Johhsons he knew he met his match
Mom was so creative she made our Halloween coustumes from scratch
A glass of wine in her hand sitting with her honey admiring their yard
An amazing woman who knew raising three boys was a joy and at times hard
Her heart was so big, during her life she had three dogs Tyson, Rufus and Goober
Mom's laugh was so unique and easily triggered by the most minor blooper
She was the happiest woman when she became grandmom to Zander and Quinn
Grandmom was their loudest cheerleader when they scored a goal for the win
Known for thinking outside the box, more like cutting it with a sharp knife
This is how Mom known as Mary to others, lived every day of her life.
