Saint Mary

Born in the Depression

She lives frugally

But her love is never-ending.

She gives her time

Without question

And rarely refuses any

Cause close to her heart.

She is a God-loving woman

Who is as close to a saint

As anyone I know.

She sees the good in

Humankind and scoffs at the bad.

Her strength can move mountains,

Her intelligence is wicked,

Her gift of conversation is engaging.

I am blessed to have her in

My life as she has taught me

To appreciate,

To love,

To give,

To believe,

To live.
