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."
