Departure 2

First mom and now you

This is becoming too familiar

Airports are now my worst fears

They have been known to kidnap the ones I love the most

It’s been a little too frequent that I am to watch while you disappear behind those gates

And even though I share your joy in your accomplishments

Reality is it never makes it easy to watch you leave,

even if its to watch you walk into another room…so imagine another country



For Gerald: Just hurry up and come home

Tribute to Mom

Perfection does not mean the exclusion of flaws

Just as Success does not mean always getting it right

Perfection means staying true to who you are

Success means staying optimistic in aid of perseverance

Which all combines to define strength

Then when you mold a woman with all these characters

She is defined as a strong woman

A mother

My mother

So thank you for staying true to you

For leaving footprints that I can never fill

But prints that I can use to guide myself

Happy Mother’s Day for all the years to come

Happy Birthdays for all the birthdays to come

And even Happy Heroes day for always being my HERO.



For all great women…mothers…daughters…females
