4th of July

Today is her birthday.

No not Ms. America.

My Mom.

Ironic she was born in Ireland.

Turned 90

Her Mom told her long ago….

“You’re so sickly you’ll live to be 90”.

Worked in London in 1945.

In the only building left standing for 3 km.

She went dances.

Upstairs ballroom, downstairs Irish

Seems the Irish were always downstairs

Came across the Atlantic on a ship in 1954

Had a room downstairs

Dragged the pram up those stairs everyday

Wanted me to get fresh air

Always had good intentions for me

Learn you times tables

Do the dishes

Get a paper route

I see fireworks in the sky
