Happy Birthday, Mom

January 30, 2011

Dear Mom,

If I could give you diamonds
for each tear you cried for me.

If I could give you sapphires
for each truth you’ve helped me see.

If I could give you rubies
for the heartache that you’ve known

If I could give you pearls
for the wisdom that you’ve shown.

Then you would have a treasure, mom,
that would mount up to the skies

That would almost match
the sparkle in your kind and loving eyes.

But I have no pearls, no diamonds,
As I’m sure you’re well aware

So I’ll give you gifts more precious
                                                        My devotion, love and care.                              ~Anonymous

With all my love
on your birthday...
and always,
