A chapter in the book Family Matters ~ Poetry & Prose

My Mother, My Friend

by BeasPeas

'Family Matters' ~ #15-450-B
Beautiful Beatrice, my mother, my friend.
Whether in spirit or here by my side,
I celebrate you, all time to transcend.
In birthday's remembrance and daughter's pride,
saying, "I miss you," ~ no need to pretend.
One day I'll greet you, my arms open wide.

Eternally grateful, my heart's overjoyed,
having your love, sent down from above.

'Family Matters'


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.
