Your grace and wit displayed to the world,

from a famous house decorated in White.

A stage often unforgiving to some,

you represented a cause known as right.

*

You chose to fight for those who couldn’t read,

a literacy campaign was your primary mission.

While you carried out your stately duties,

in keeping with American First Lady tradition.

*

You were a devoted wife to a president,

the mother of another Commander-in-Chief.

Instilling morals in politics was your gift,

not shying away from your own belief.

*

Our nation needed your presence,

in a world so uncertain and corrupt.

Your departure was a surprise to many,

one day in the news, then a death so abrupt.

*

Good bye Mrs. Barbara Pierce Bush,

a mother figure to many in our land.

You will be missed by people near and far,

I salute you with my Veteran’s hand.

    Yes, farewell, Mrs. Bush! You’ll be greatly missed. 🙂

    I am from Texas and I can’t tell you the personal impact the Bushes have had on Texas. 🙂 My friend Paul even ran into her at a restaurant in Houston one time. And every applauded as she and Senior Bush walked in. 🙂
