Happy Birthday Geraldine

For your birthday, mother of mine
I caught a fish at sea today
Then I ate him with a good wine
So now in me I feel him play
And swim around my DNA

You dead and gone for all these years,
You still frolic around my brain
All your stories, laughter...and tears
Still rumble like a distant train
Somewhere in New Brunswick or Maine

The fish, the train, the thoughts of you
Give my life all the vitamins
I need to work and play...THANK YOU
You were and are...and I don't mince
my words...the greatest gal of all.
