Ft. Lauderdale, Fl USA
She may not stand as straight and tall
As she did years before
And footsteps make a slower path
When she walks out her door.
Her face may show a wrinkled path
Down decades come and gone
And bones may creak a little
With the coming of each dawn...
But there's a twinkle in her eye
A smile upon her face.
Her features still contain a world
Of dignity and grace.
Her body holds a heart of gold
For all who pass her way
And I am proud to know her on
This very special day.
There's no way to imagine all
The things that she's been through,
A small child back in World War I,
A wife in World War II.
She got her family through it all
With work and sacrifice
A testament to victory
For those who pay the price.
My best to you, dear Momma.
May your wishes all come true.
I wish you health and happiness
In everything you do.
Though many years have left their mark
You made it through it all
And you're a giant in my eyes
Three hundred meters tall!!!!
