Guiding Light Mom

Mom, from the time I was really young,
I realized I had someone...you,
who always cared,
who always protected me,
who was always there for me no matter what.
You taught me right from wrong,

You were and are
the guiding light of my life.
My heart is filled with love for you,
my teacher, my friend, my mother.
