"The ultimate gift"

A free-verse poem by J.W. Appel

You have loved me and laughed with me

You have wiped away my tears and kept me from doubting myself

You have believed in the dreams I've shared with you and helped me chase them

You have protected me from the dangers of the world and taught me it's beauty

You have given me the Ultimate gift and asked nothing in return for yourself

You gave me life and made it good.

Happy Mother's day.
