From: Proverbs 31

Who can find a virtuous woman?
For her price is far above rubies.

She looketh well to the ways of
her household, and eateth not
the bread of idleness.

Her children arise up, and call
her blessed; her husband also,
and he praiseth her. ~  KJV


I slowly close my eyes,
Receding through gone by years,
Bring back thoughts of you,
Among the fresh flowing tears.

A kiss upon your rosy cheek,
A soft hand to caress my face,
The loving voice as you greet me,
Your aged movements etched in grace.

I long to feel your motherly touch,
Through no other can that special love flow,
Instead of standing close by your side,
In mournful memory I often go.

Sweet gentle, woman my dear Mother,
In rest below the granite stone,
I bring to you a rose in full bloom,
Though I know onward, you have gone.
