My Mother’s Story

In my last show of “Mister, This Is Going On Your Permanent Record!” I read a short

poem my mother wrote on the occasion of my leaving for college. It is a poem about loss.

  1. Michael Joyce says:

    “My mother died with her music still in her.”
    The gentle woman you called “Honey”
    Your dad we all called “Sir.”

    You have a talent Rick
    for speech, the pen, and photo.
    From whence it came?

    Perhaps wrapped in a mother’s love,
    encouragement without criticism
    acceptance begetting courage

    Those talents
    are the music within you.
    A Honey of a legacy
