My first love
From inside we shared a connection
That words will never explain to perfection.
The sight I saw
You held out your arms in a warm embrace
And you gazed upon me with love and kindness.
With care you fed me
Your eyes were ever watchful
Your pride and joy
You protected from harm.
You taught me things no teacher in the four walls of a classroom will ever be able to teach.
Your nature has nurtured me into the man I am today
Proud of our bond
Confident in your love and care.
The heavens will know of your greatness
For I shall tell tales of your wonders
Till my last breath!
I LOVE YOU MOTHER!
