Ode to my Mama by Anna Frient
The warrior chef cooked dinner for a full table.
Drove to ballet classes and football games,
Sat in the theatre to watch us act our dramas,
Took us to church to sing our prayers.
Wrote yearly Christmas poems,
updating others poetically, her pride in her family.
Allowed us to follow our dreams,
and let us make our own mistakes.
Made us fresh cookies for our lunches,
and dropped them off at school when we forgot them.
Gave us natural remedies,
and didn’t let us eat anything with MSG.
Mother, mama, madre,
>you are beautiful to me.
Thank you for it all,
but especially the cookie recipes.
