Years have passed as you have too
Much missed and more the thought of you
Not being here to be just near
Near to hold to, to calm such fears

You were the one that kept the peace
Though time slipped by time thought of least
You were but here if for awhile
Today your son searched for a smile

A smile to keep if just this day
A heartbeat felt of yours today
To keep the good you gave to me
To feed on it, to help me see

Life is like that, today ours borrowed
To celebrate for someday sorrow
Will come to knock upon our door
To try and steal what we have stored

A thousand kisses and I love you
The best of you to see things through
For time does come to end such days
Days of such joy we wished had stayed

It hurts again, the warmth of you
That gave me breath, precious I drew
Within your womb, surely much better
That I would leave and put in letters

You were mother, my all when falls
Unlike another and missed phone calls
The part of you, your sentiment
Spills on this page, to you now sent

Sent with much love on your birthday
From your first son, missed by one day

I wish you well as well I'm sure
For you're in Heaven where all things pure
Are made of mothers, as you who loved
This man your child, immersed in love

Happy Birthday Mom!
