Your Mother - Unknown Author
Your Mother is always with you. She’s the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street,
she’s the smell of certain foods you remember, flowers you pick, the fragrance of life itself.
She’s the cool hand on your brow when you’re not feeling well, she’s your breath in the air on a
cold winter’s day. She is the sound of rain that lulls you to sleep, the colors of a rainbow, she is
Christmas morning. Your mother lives inside your laughter. She’s the place you came from,
your first home, and the map you follow with every step you take. She’s your first love, your first
friend. Nothing on earth can separate you. Not time, not space...not even death.
