A Tribute To My Mother
She was my shining example
Of strength and compassion
And of honor and love
I was grateful to call her “Mom”
She blessed my life profoundly
For she wasn’t only my Mother
She was my dear friend
My Mother had great strength
And she was wise…
I always knew I could draw from her strength
Whenever I needed it
It gave me courage to grow up and take chances
To experience life’s successes…
And a few of its failures
Mother’s compassion for others was so deep!
She looked for the need and she filled it
She treated others with kindness and respect
And many lives were touched through her goodness
Mother was an honorable woman
This wasn’t just a mere aspect of her personality
It was the very foundation of her character
It’s impossible for me to think of Mom
Without such words as honor, dignity and respect
Quickly coming to mind
But most of all…Mother was love
I am convinced that the world
Will never be as bright and beautiful
As it was when my Mother was here
Mom’s love was unconditional
And the sweetest and most enduring part of her love is
That it will always be with me
It was my Mother’s most important…and final gift to me
To my dear Mother: I have a few pledges to make to you
First- I’ll try to make you proud every day
Second- Even though I’ll miss you terribly
I promise to bravely face the coming days
Determined to be happy
And not to dwell in sadness too long
Without recalling the wonderful memories
That you’ve filled my life with
Most of all…
I promise to try to pattern my life more after yours
For there could be no more fitting tribute
To ever reach my ears
Than to be told by others
That I remind them of you
Alt. Verse: Than to be referred to as 'My mother’s daughter'
Alt. Verse: Than to be referred to as 'My mother’s son'
Alt. Verse: Than to be told by others that I’m just like you
