From the cradle till now you have 
been by my side.

From scraped knees to bruised hearts,
Your  presence has been my rock,
You are always ready to help out 
whenever needed.

You're the one who has given so much 
to make me the person I am today.
Teaching right from wrong, to be morally
 just in all ways.

I see love in your eyes when you look at me,
and a frown when something is wrong.
Mom, the most amazing person I know ,
putting everyone else first in you're  life. 
I hope someday to be  more like you.
Till the clock on my setting sun will close
my eyes.
I'll love you Mom.

    Anne, this is a tremendous write for Mom and it just about expresses all the feeling I had for my Mom before she died. She had more love than anyone I ever knew and after 20 years I still miss her so much. Great Job and keep up the good work. Your friend,Lynn.
