Poem for Mom......

Hello there......Happy Mother's Day! I know it is getting late.....I am sitting here blog surfing and reading some very profound excerpts that have hit my heart and wanting so badly to be able to write my own. I will have an empty nest soon, my youngest graduates in just 2 weeks from high school. So my thoughts are somewhat happy and sad at the same time. Any way I was going through some papers and scrappy stuff and found a poem that my daughter wrote me a few years ago when she was away on has meant so very much to me. Reading them again has blessed me even more me hope for the future. Here are her words.....

Poem for Mom

I was the first one to hear your
heart beat from the inside,
I was the first one to hear you breath
from under your heart,
I heard you laugh,
I heard you cry,
I know who you are.

You are my Mother,
You taught me to live
even before I was born,
when only you knew who I was.
You are my mother, my teacher, my friend.

I love you, my Mother.

Happy Mother's Day!!
