  Mother (excerpted from  Candy, Sweet & Sour  Chapter 35 "Laying Mama to Rest " Mother. Mother.  I wish I could be strong for you.  I want to take you back  through your past,  and ease those lines on your face,  take away the reasons for each gray hair that prematurely dots  that glorious red head.  I admire your spunk, your spirit, the children you’ve raised,  and the person I’ve become with your guidance.
