She is there for me when all the world is against me.
She is the glue that holds my family together.
She is the rock that a thousand people can stand upon all at once.
She is the ear that will listen when no one else will hear.
She is my protector against all physical and mental adversaries.
She is there to wipe every tear from my eye.
She is with me despite all of my disappointments and faults.
She is always there to hold my hand every step of the way, yet she is there to let go of it when the time is right.
She is the one that will give me everything, yet ask for nothing in return.
She is the one that would give her life for me.
She is the one who will sacrifice everything just to be there for each and every moment of my life.
She is the one who shared her body with me, without even seeing my face, hearing my voice or feeling my touch.
She is my guiding light that has taught me almost everything I need to know about life.
She is the love, light, soul, heart, peace, power, emotion, force, understanding and care.
She is...my one and only, my mother.
