For all that you have given me,
I can return but love.
On the days when the sun isn’t shining so bright,
Your smile brightens my world, and glistening in your smile is your heart of gold.
Your eyes caress my uneasiness, letting me know everything will be okay.
How can you know how much you mean to me?
After a number of heartaches, there unconditional love lays.
Blessed I am, for the woman you are, and the one I will become.
Since birth it’s been you & I.
I know I have a lot of siblings,
You share a separate yet special bond with each us.
But lately, I’ve been caught up in this growth between myself and my pride.
I know I haven’t been an easy child, however
I’m just trying to express to you my apologies.
I look into your eyes and see the wounds on your soul, your hurt.
I admire what you’ve provided me with.
I am grateful.
Anyone can see it in our lives,
The joy each one of us derives,
in just knowing that the other one is there –
To care and understand,
To lend an ear or hold a hand,
And celebrate in the memories and love we share.
You’ve passed onto me your elegant attributes.
Your hugs are laced with tender, loving, care.
Your kisses calm down my heart, and give me reassurance that you’ll always be there.
Your skin glows, radiant with triumph.
My inspiration to become everything, you know I can be.
You helped to build my mind.
And I want you to know –
The thought of you by me
Makes me smile and give thanks to God for having you in my life.
We will be close
Forever, not just for a while.
I appreciate my mother.
Gentle yet Strong.
You’ve been patient when I’m foolish;
You give me guidance even when I don’t ask.
Its evident you can do most anything;
A master of every task.
You’ve been my cushion when I fall.
Help in times of trouble.
I love you more than you know,
You have my entirety of respect.
And if God gave me my choice of mothers,
There would be no question,
You’d be the one I would select.
Although time is non-directional, it always moves forward.
We have memories to look back on, and I am able to bask in your love.
“The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness”
Well it doesn’t just take mother’s day to let you to understand,
That not only are you My Mother, but
A Phenomenal Woman.
