Etched In My Heart—Poem

by Samuel De Lemos

Etched in my heart—your
Kind smile and selfless devotion.

Etched in my heart—
A photograph of you holding
a bundle of love.

Etched in my heart—the way
your hands work,
helping to make ends meet.

Etched in my heart—your honesty
and sympathy, the way you you help us
stay on solid ground.

Etched in my heart—how beautiful
you look when you wake up out of bed.

Etched in my heart—you nurture us
all with sweetness, compassion, and
soothing words.

Etched in my heart—your love for family,
and the way you stand up for what’s right.
Regardless of personal peril you always
keep us on a steady course.
