This poem I wrote to my daughters, Lisa and Shelly. It is about our life together. I raised my girls (now grown) all alone. It was hard but we survived through our belief in God and our love for each other.

This poem originally was published in Poems on Life

Love Forever Lisa
Our first years together were fun and play
Never a worry; Making memories each day!
We were best friends or "sisters" in our own little world!
You were my angel from heaven, my precious little girl!

A gift from God and I've loved you so
With a love so strong only a mother would know
I've tasted salt when you've shed tears
My life's been your life all through the years!

Life's about changes, nothing stays the same
Together we've stood to face whatever came!
We've fought the battle, we've won the war
The "proof" is in the person you are!

It was "just us three" for oh so long
"Me and You against the World" was our theme song!
We've made it through times I didn't think we would
We've accomplished things I never dreamed we could!

Now as you've taken a new path, a new direction you go
You'll make it just fine, that "proof" will show!
I'll still be here for you through tears or laughter
Today, Tomorrow, and Forever After!
