You were just a child when you had me,
A girl, not yet a woman, and now with a baby.
Alone, unsure and now raising two,
If anyone was going to succeed, it was surely to be you.
I never understood the struggles you faced,
Each and everyday seemed like a brand new race.
Your temper as fierce as your beauty,
Nothing could stop you and your enduring sense of duty.
I tried and tested you until the very end,
Yet through it all, you are my one true friend.
My hero, my inspiration and all that I love,
Those that have passed, watch with pride up above.
You are the one I call Mother,
The only one I have, unlike any other.
