Happy Birthday Mom

My Mom

For as long as I can remember
she's been by my side
to give me support
to give me confidence
to give me help

For as long as I can remember
she has always been the person I looked up to
so strong
so sensitive
so beautiful

For as long as I can remember
and still today
she's everything a mother should be

For as long as I can remember
she has always provided stability within our family
full of laughter
full of tears
full of love

So much of what I have become
is because of her
and I want her to know
that I appreciate her, thank her
and love her
more than words can express


This is not a Derek original this was from Blue Mountain Art,  Susan Polis Scwartz
