Mum

Five foot  two

Quilt stitched coat of blue

Native pride

Spiritual strength inside

Lower Nicola band

Shuswap Clan

Tony and Jerry

Each man you did marry

Chur pops Mum

Day had begun

Nineteen Seventy-two

I had no clue

When the music played

You faced it unafraid 

Get up to eat 

Cream of wheat

Wrestling meet

Always in your seat

Tab and Tuna Chili 

Weighing food wasn’t silly 

Green bean stuff

Could never eat enough

Pecan tarts are nice 

Pork Hocks and rice 

Open ear 

20 plus without a beer

Elvis the king

Let’s karaoke to sing

Elton John

It was Your Song

Bloodshot eyes

You were not surprised

Boot camp daily

You sent maily 

Red Rose Tea

Sister of Grandma Susie 

Picking berries

Still friends with Mary

Coronation street

Light on your feet

Trust is wealth

Binhave yourself 

Wounds from long ago

Continues to help us grow

Whom do I love like no other?

That’s Mum, my Mother
