The Most Special Day

Mom, your birthday is
The most special day of the year,
because without you I wouldn't have
the all encompassing comfort
of a Mothers unconditional love...
your love, for me.
You are always there for me, Mom
Whenever I need you,
to cheer me up, make me smile,
bolster my confidence,
or sympathize with me and ease my worries,
you fill up my empty, hurting places
with your abounding affection.
You always give of yourself,
you give everything you have to others.
If I could give you diamonds, sapphires, and rubies,
it would never show you how I feel.
There is not anything in this world
that I could give you that would prove
my love and devotion.
You are my "best friend."
Your loving presence in my life
gives me a reassuring feeling
of love and peace.
I thank the Lord
that you are in my life
yesterday, today, and forever.
I love you more than you will ever know.
I wish for you today, nothing but fun, happiness and peace.
