Birthday Poem for Mama

You've raised us all, these 50 years and more
We've be coddled, and loved, and never ignored
You taught us that life should be embraced and adored
And prepared us for all that life had in store

But your  family still needs your loving rapport
Your children, our children, their children and more
They all need to learn about life's great rewards
Those same lessons you gave, all those years passed before.
