 "Play Your Cards" Dedicated to mom

 To lose a child,

(it must be rough)

Then lose a husband

(it must be tough)

Then goes your mother

(her time was up)

3 losses in 4's

a deck of bluff

Still you never faded away

This game of life you continue to play

And with time heals the pain

Believe in God

continue to pray

Spoiled women continue to blush

With trials and error you couldn't do such

But upon my hand you reign supreme

My mom the Queen

A Royal Flush
