Happy Birthday, Mom

Happy birthday, Mom I wonder how many years have passed by Since I gave you my first tenuous smile Since you steadied my first faltering step Since the first time I called you "Mommy" You are the place I came from You are my first home You are an angel in human form Who lives inside my laughter And crystallized in my every tear drop I want to thank you For your heart, faith and hope For teaching me right from wrong For your tender care and warm hugs For all your steadfast love For filling my days with rainbow lights For all the times we have shared For always being there in my time of need For helping me deal with life's stresses For helping me accept my defeats For everything you have done For you made me a woman I am One birthday after another They seem faster each year I just want you to know that The years you devoted to me, You can trust, were worthwhile. Happy Birthday, Mom. You are the best Mom a daughter could have. ~For my Mom's B'day @July 12

Based on this poem, in and of itself, I sense that your mom was a wonderful person. Since it is obvious that you truly feel this way, you and your mom are a very lucky couple. May the circle be unbroken.

Very, very touching!!! Your mom would love this. I had to do the same thing for my Mom (though that was a surprise) on her b-day when I was there. It was just monumental to see the smile on her face. Beautifully done!
