Happy Birthday Mum!

The first heartbeat I heard was yours
the first arms to hold me
The first one to show me love
The first one to teach me lessons in life
The first to hold me when I took my first steps
The first one to show me acceptance
The first one to comfort me when I needed most
The first one I called to share my news, good or bad
The first one to guide me through my struggles and my pain
The first one I think of when making decisions, big or small

Because I have always had a mother!

I miss you more than I could ever express,
The pain I feel in my heart is from one unimaginable day,
Now, afraid of life, my footsteps now on an unsure path
how I wish you could have stayed just a little while longer

My Mother, my voice of reason, my supporter, my teacher, my best friend,
My confidant, my nerve calmer, my problem solver, my peacekeeper, my chef,
my psychologist, my shoulder, my sunshine.
I dream of the day when we are reunited once again!

So today on your birthday, if you can hear me or feel me, I say:
You’re  loved and dearly missed without a doubt.
