In memory of my dear Mother, Virginia Walker who died 13 years ago today
Tragically in a crushing auto-now I wonder how I can repay
All the subtle obvious lessons she taught me and my 3 sisters every day.
Her tall lanky presence proceeded her graceful beautiful walk
She was a conscious, nurturing Mother, she could talk
Her long slender fingers could do so much, she was my building block
Her spirit resides next to me, in me, her legacy inspires me
She taught me how to take care, to be happy
Love, excel, to see how others believe, and accept broadly
I had always tried to please her with a helping hand
Knowing her I became gentle and kind, able to make an assertive stand
She taught me beauty, humanity, love for family, how to say “I can!”
I am sad she left at 74- seems too early for an intellectual, feminist
Art lover extraordinaire. We miss her critical eye, analytical perspective
Determined Mother, overprotective, loved always with blue reminiscence.
