Dedicated to my mum

She sat by the side, quiet in her thoughts,
Into the distance her gaze went,
Regal as royalty holding court,
A scene, as those of old sang,
Broken by the sound of laughter,
She came back from her reverie,
Watching the children in their banter,
A smile, slight that no one can see,
Her eyes, warm around the edge,
Old in her age? I would say never,
For it is quite clear,
My mother is loved by everyone around her......
