A Tribute to My Mother

By Gabriela Gastelum, Mesa, AZ

Learn how to smile when everyone is crying.
Try to tell the truth when all around are lying.

Whisper words of love when hate screams to escape.
Think about your blessings each morning you wake.

Understand that feelings are a way to be;
You don't need your eyes in order to see.

I do love the rain and the foggy days,
But you know I love you in a million other ways.

You showed me the world that I used to deny;
And you've always loved me like an angel from the sky.
