When it came to listening my mother taught me open heart and silence

When it came to speaking said it is not done with the mouth but through thought and patience

When it came to being said be tender and rough at once for you must remain vulnerable to fully live but tough to survive it all

When it came to choosing said be thankful and willing for choices were the one thing she never had the privilege of making
