~ An Hour With You~

You are cordially invited to a birthday gala,
In honor of our mother, a lady dear,
Come join with us in the celebration,
We will be so blessed by your presence here.

Celebration in honor of Velma on October 14, 2006,
Between the afternoon hours of two and four,
Family will be waiting to greet you,
Please join in sweet family rapport.

Inviting Velma's nieces, nephews,
First cousins and grandkids too,
All of her children will come,
She'll be so pleased to see all of you.

Married to Wiley until his death in '98,
Mother to five girls and one boy,
W.D., June, Janice, Sylvia, and Faye,
Margaret just joined dad in Heaven's joy.

A mother to love and cherish,
She is e'er dear to our hearts,
Always there for her children,
Of our lives she's a treasured part.

Memories stored and we will recall,
Many times have brought us delight,
We treasure the gift of a wonderful mom,
In our lives she's always shown bright.

She still lives within a short distance,
From the place she was raised,
Everyone that has known her,
Velma's goodness they still praise.

Takes care of herself with great pride,
At home she still loves to dwell,
Visits her children, enjoys each one,
And we all think she's just swell.

Dressed and groomed by the stroke of nine,
Her care of home and self take priority,
Face and hair all preened to perfection,
A daily must by her esteemed authority.

Always a believer in neat and clean,
Missing anything lately brother or sister,
Mother won't let things stack up you know,
She clears her path like a mighty twister.

Oh my goodness what have you done?
Something has happened to your hair,
Scissor been snippin' away I see,
Itís time for the magic of a beautician's flair.

In-laws are favorites or so it seems,
Better to you than us kids I hear,
They hold silent when we speak,
But they love you so much mother dear.

You are so precious to all of us,
Mother we will always treasure,
The care and love throughout the years,
Were gifts given without measure.

Come on mother and share a secret,
The question you cannot nix,
Give us the answer on how to make it,
To live to be a grand ninety six!!!!
