Happy Birthday Mom...
I bought a card for your birthday,
with a poem inside.
It told of my love for you...
it expressed emotions I so often hide.
I signed it with love and sealed
it with a kiss.
I wrote your name on the front...
for this special day I never miss.
It's been some time since you left
this child behind.
tho' your legacy is forever
a part of my soul, body and mind.
I cried when I realized how often
I need you here.
The tears streamed down my cheeks,
when suddenly I felt your presence near.
I thought I heard angels of joy
singing your song.
Catching my breath, I whispered softly,
"I love you. Happy Birthday, Mom."
