My Mother

She's a lady of great style and grace
A force to be reckoned with
Her spirit strong, a work of art
Who sure knows how to live!


Your history's written on my heart
With every passing year
We've shared all sorts of memories
The laughter and the tears


You've given me so many gifts
Oh yes, I am aware!
And now I am reminding you
Of just how much I care


I am your child, and will always be
Nothing can change that truth
The little girl who needs you so
Though I am far from youth


You have a place within my heart
That no one else can fill
But most of all you have my love
And you know you always will

Karen Shaw Matteson

Happy Mother's Day, Mom.
You're unforgettable!

There is no velvet so soft as a mother's lap
no rose as lovely as her smile,
no path so flowery as that
imprinted with her footsteps.
