Dedicated To My Mom
Dedicated To My Mom
A perfect student who follows every rule
You always listen to whatever I say that’s true
Sometimes too well and you need to speak out and let the world hear you
Smart and yet quiet and keeps to yourself
Never making waves and hiding behind others like an elf
Wearing what I tell you to and never quarreling or caring
I guess being overweight your sister’s clothes you won’t be sharing
I know that you do not like the way you look all the time
Being overweight dear child is really not such a crime
Listen to your mother I know what’s best for you
Choosing your friends and who you stay with will improve your life so true
Friends that are respectful and smart in school like you
Are the only ones acceptable I telling you what to do
You need to always remember I have your best interests at heart
So never question anything I say and things will work from the start
Like what College to go to and what career I chose for you to pursue
Teaching is the only one I truly think will work for you.
Throughout JHS you strove to be the best at the violin and more
Making sure that no one took your first chair or your wrath for him or her was in store.
I know that you never liked to speak up in class you see
But, 7th grade your teacher said she will or my name is not Mr. Lee
He taught you to express yourself and let your voice be heard
Of course you understood that respectfully was the keyword
To making you known to others and to speak your mind to them
Letting people know you have an opinion and that you are a precious gem
So, listen to your mother’s words even though I am not able to express them anymore
Listen to your heart and you will hear what I would say evermore
I am still here but silent at times and for that you know the cause
Alzheimer’s has taken away my voice but I speak through yours.
Your mother: Ruth Swerdloff
Listen to your mother and hear her voice and you will always know what to do and what is right for you!
