Beneath every tree are roots
Holding… interlocking… feeding
Bringing strength foundation
Roots the source of all beauty we see
looking at a tree
You’ve heard, “Behind every successful man
is a good woman.”
My mother was that good woman
holding interlocking our family
feeding… caring for each one.
My father was a pillar of the community
on strength and nourishment
of my mom who was always there for him.
An unsung hero
she was the roots of our tree.
Without her none of us would be
standing as we are today.
My father died at age 70. My mom lived to be 93!
