This is a poem written by Jackie for her mother, Vashti, on Mother’s Day, 1998.
FOR MY MOM ON MOTHER’S DAY
I’ve been alive for many a year, But I would not be here, without MOM being here!
She can kiss all my hurts and troubles good bye, Just by saying, ‘Oh Sugar,’ and heaving a sigh.
I know whe I call, I will hang up much better, And there is no joy to match – like receiving a letter.
Over and and over I gladly will pour, Enjoying my bond with my mother once more.
And of all that she send me, This I hold to, My mother saying again, “Oh how I love you!”
I loooooooove you mom!
Happy Mother’s Day
Your first-born daughter, Jackie
