You've always treated me with such respect and care
You have always been here for me when no one else was there
You're one of my hardest critics, always eager to lend a hand
Explaining to me when things are tough in a way I can understand
I know raising me wasn't easy but you did it with such grace
Always there for me no matter what with a smile or frown upon thy face
You inspired me to write this and to believe in all I do
I am blessed to have a treasured loving mother as you..
