Happy Mother's Day!

What does it mean to be a mother?
To breathe the gift of life, into another?
Your beauty is truly beyond compare,
So kind-hearted, so good, so fair!
The sacrifices one's mother makes, 
Though she's tired, and she aches,
Cooking, cleaning, she does without vice,
But most importantly: her love? Comes with no price.
Words can't fathom how much love I have for you,
Everyday is a new journey this is true,
You brought me into this world with curious eyes,
The first thing I saw?
Your loving smile.
Blessed am I, to receive a guardian angel like you;
When the world beams at you, you cast your shine upon it too!
If you have to remember one thing, I beg of you, please do,
Through all the purity and love,
I'll always love you! 
Happy Mother's Day to all the amazing mothers out there!
