I celebrate you, all time to transcend.
In birthday's remembrance and daughter's pride,
saying, "I miss you," ~ no need to pretend.

The book continues with Truly The Last Boy Scout. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.

Author Notes
Celebrating my mother's birthday, so I decided to post in bright colors. She passed in 2002. I was fortunate to have a great mom. This is a photo of her at about 18 years old. She is the "Bea" in Beaspeas. Thank you for reading my poetry.

Image: "Beatrice, My Mother" (circa 1930).
