I Miss My Mama and the Women from another Mother

by Marie Johnson-Ladson

They were there through the good and bad times 
They were my Mama and the Women from another Mother 
I miss my Mama and the Women from another Mother 

We cried and enjoyed together 
I miss their smiles, the fun and laugher

They taught me right from wrong and many lessons
I miss our daily talks and their positive attitudes  

These were the women in my life that helped mold me and gave me unconditional love 
I miss their kindness and patience
I am grateful and thankful they were in my life 
They were all exceptional and unique 

I appreciate the memories 
I miss our times together 

In the Bible, it speaks of a Mother saying: 

“She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.” — Proverbs 31:26-27
