What A Great Gift

What a great gift, my thanks to you
For heartfelt smiles, all that you do
A whispered word, my doubts belie
Not when I lose, but when I try
I learned to fly, because of you

When I was down, somehow I knew
You would be there to see me through
You dried my tears and hushed my sighs
What a great gift

When I would act without a clue
You would assure my wisdom grew
Face all my fears, failure deny
On your support I could rely
There is a me because of you
What a great gift

A tribute to my mother

About oldmainer

I am a retired manager living in Southern Maine and a would be writer of poetry, narratives, short stories, and random opinions, and that's how Oldmainer was born. Recently, I decided to try an experiment. I added photography to the mix, using only a cheap cell phone with a limited camera and the editing software that came with it, and added the blog site Inklings at poormanspoet.wordpress.com to showcase the results. So, feel free to use whatever you find interesting or worthy, but please honor the terms of my copyright when and if you do. They may not be much, but they are still a piece of me. I appreciate your checking me out and hope that you find something that will encourage a return visit. Thanks for stopping by.
