A Mother's Gift

God looked into his soul
to create the best mother a child could
ever want and then he gave me you.
You have a beauty that
can't be captured by words
and a fiery personality that
shines bright like the sun.
You are everything I hope
to be when I become a mother.
You've taught me what it is
to be a strong, independent,
loving person and I treasure you and
every single moment we spent together.
There are not enough words to
let you know how much you mean
to me but all I can say is thank
you for being my mother and I love you.
