The "surprise" that you, someday, will see what others can clearly see now...
Are the thrills you have lovingly supplied for others.
Seen all along from the very beginning of your birth
Can only, from your beginning, be seen by MOTHERS.
Every day with you is the reason I have the best life
A mother could live...
And just because you chose as your main goal in life
was to GIVE, GIVE, GIVE.
When just 17 months old you gave me a bouquet of flowers from our front yard.
As you presented them to me, you said: "here mom, fowers"
You never stopped doing that kind of giving
All during your life of living your daily hours.
What is left for me to say in the Ramblings of a mother:
Truer words were never spoken.
PS: All your family members are totally aware of this.
Their comments over the years have been the usual: "That's Mike!"
