For My Mother


(by the daughter of a mother with CF, May 1997)

    Whose pale fair skin and bright blue eyes light up her life She walks with an oxygen tube following her. She always greets me with ” I love you daughter”

    Her voice brings happiness to my life. Her moans always tell me she’s sleeping Her cough lets me know when she is near.

    She calls me on the phone and tries to wake me for school  She comes to my room to check on me and care for me.

    She is the light of my life. She brightens up everyday of mine. For my mother who loves me
