what a wonderful mother

For awhile I reminded her what a wonderful mother,

wife and teacher she had been.

“Really?” she said, trying to find that person in the fog.

Now those nouns are meaningless.

So I can only tell her she is beautiful.

Her beauty still matters to her most.

For the first time,

my sister and I are glad that this is so.
