This beautiful poem was written by my sister pictured above at 3:00am last night about our mother. Happy Birthday in advance Mummy, 09/25/09


 

I am like my mother, tough, resilient; 
I rise up and overtake like a tsunami when a goal needs to be accomplished.
I am like my mother, gentle, loving, and deep like the ocean;
with love for whoever needs it.
I am like my mother like a mighty mountain;
shielding her loved ones and those who need to be cared for from storms and enemies.
I am like my mother, a fountain of youthful hope and faith in GOD.

It is plain to see that your sister and you not only share being both lovely ladies but also a talent in expressing your feelings to perfection when you want to say what is in y our heart. This is one awesome tribute to your mom and the only suggestion I would make is to get rid of the coloured print...it detracts from the colour of the words themselves.
