Mother

I look into her eyes and see

All that I strive to be

The epitome of elegance and grace

Symbolic of the strength I need to run this daily race

The sweet voice of reason

Whose love encompasses throughout the season

As I stand facing the mirror

The image I see is you

And nothing in this world could be any dearer

In my heart and soul reigns true

You are the source of my being

In your stilettos I follow

Standing firm and never fleeing

From your mouth your words I devour

For nourishment and to allow me to grow

In your wisdom and knowledge I found power

So for all our earthly days, my true love I will show

You are my mother

God’s precious gift and like no other

So from my heart I say to you

For all the trouble

The tears I’ve made you cry

The nights without sleep

When you pondered the question why

And the promises I did not keep

Please accept from my sincere heart

A forgiving plea

To reseal the bond and never part

The unconditional love I have for thee

Mother, oh mother

As I stand facing the mirror

The image I see is you

And nothing in this world could be any dearer

In my heart and soul reigns true

How greatly blessed I am to have you.
