The Greatest Love

Lady you are my life, my closest dearest girl. You complete me, you're my precious pearl. Your loving eyes, smooth my rough edges. To you I give my heart, my love pledges. In your arms, I find sweet warm solace. Your love gives me rest, from the rat race. You hold me close, then whisper in my ear. Tender words that soothe, relax my soul all year. Would that to you, I could give untold riches. To you the best garments, with the fanciest stitches. I would buy for you dearest , the shiniest sleekest car, Gifts sent for you every day, cause you're a superstar. No other ever could hope to match you, no comparison. You are my fortress, my castle, my strong garrison. Yet you say "Phew" to all these things, "You needn't bother." My great love, you are indeed the perfect MOTHER.

The title just drew me in Carl. Such heartfelt devotion to the woman that owns your heart. No doubt our mothers deserve that and even more.
