Dance Poem of the week: An Ode to the Stage Mom

I love to dance and dance I do
I like it when people clap for me too.

Sometimes I shiver a little with fright
As I go on stage to perform
But wearing the kiss that she placed on my cheek
I'm able to dance in top form.

I work very hard and have lots of fun
With all my dance family
But because of a special one
If she's not fixing our shoes with a stitch here and there
Then she's checking our makeup and adjusting our hair.

Kids come from all over some uncertain and scared
Then she gives them her smile that say's ''I know your prepared''

She's thoughtful and helpful
Her sweet smile I love
As it's so kind and so loving
Like it's sent down from above.

For our special moments
What would you expect
Our stage mom of course
With a camera on her neck.

So whom do I praise here
It's really no secret
Except to the one
That we owe this great debt.

Put all of the stage moms
Line the stage all across
And who would we pick?
of course......DEBBIE DECOSSE
