Thank you, mom, for being my best friend;

For being with me when I'm at my wit's end.

For accepting me for who I truly am,

For listening whenever I recite a psalm.

I guess I could never explain my gratitude

To you and your never-ending fortitude

For inspiring me to do my best in all

The things that I may do, may it be big or small.

Nature's beauty is nothing compared to yours.

You're beautiful, even when filled with remorse.

I'll always be with you wherever you are,

Because I love you mom, you're my shining star!
