A poem by Michael Thompson, Mackay, QLD

Mum grew us up on love alone.
That’s what makes us family.
A kinship system that never went away
Her faith is her spiritualness
Her spirit is within her kids.
We all have our mother’s heart
Full of love
The love Mum gave us

Michael dedicates this poem to the Willie families with deepest sympathies. Thank you Michael for sending in your poetry!
