My Inspiration is my mother,

She gave me life and reason to live

Always thinking of other's

She always has something to give.

The love she shows is overwhelming,

Even though it's seldom spoke

There are no need for words,

You can feel it..

In her beautiful brown eyes.

It starts in your toes,

And rises to your throat.

A love of a mother like mine,

I know is truly rare.

My mother.. My best friend,

That is one friend I know

Will always be there.

The tears I caused still haunt me,

Not knowing then..

What she was going through.

She had our backs completely...


Life would not be worth living

If we didn't have you.
