My own thoughts of my fond memories of my loving childhood.

You have nurtured my spirit and soul from the beginning
Touching me so ever gently giving me love never ending
Cradled me in your arms while singing soothing lullabies
Kissing my cheek while stroking gently the tears from my eyes

Holding my tiny hand helping me learn to walk
Standing by my side as so to catch me whenever I would fall
Your loving spirit shined a light as bright as the great northern star
Leading me through the darkness keeping me far away from any harm

Sheltering and comforting me giving no regard to yourself
You unselfishly did without to take care of me like no one else
Your blanket of love kept me warm when I was cold
Nurturing and loving you wrapped your heart around my soul

All my great accomplishments in this life I have been blessed
Is because of you my sweet Mother so donít ever second guess
You have made me what I am and what I have yet to be
The best human being, loving mother to my own precious three

And as I watch my daughter tenderly embrace her own precious gifts of life everything seems to come full circle and everything in the world is right

So as you gave to me all your life all the love you had to give
I give to you all my love for all my life after all it is the greatest gift
