I lost a dear friend to cancer tonight..........she was the woman that put the newsletters together at work........anyway.......before she passed away she asked me to write a very short poem about mothers so she can put it in the newsletter.  I already submitted one but I thought it'd be fun to turn it into a challenge.  

The only rule i have is that it has to be no more than 10 lines .........i'd like it to be funny......or endearing. ( preferrably funny because i could use a laugh and she was one of those people that enjoyed a good sense of humor)
so this is the challenge..........write me a short humorous or endearing poem about mothers.......it can not be any more than 10 lines....here are a few of my entries.
my mother is a charming woman
Filled with beauty and wit,
But if you ask my father this
He'll say she's full of **** .


( 2nd entry)

Mothers are filled
with charm and good cheer
But fathers are filled
With bologna and beer.

(3rd entry)

What more could you ask of a mother
Than love, charm and good grace,
For you my dear mother
Are the smile I wear on my face.

(4th entry)

No matter the reason,
whatever the reason,
For she is ALWAYS there.

The woman who has shown to me
A love beyond compare.

She's always been the patient one
Always managing to stay calm,
This woman is my saving grace
And i'm proud to call her "mom."
