To the one who gave me a life to live,
I can give nothing but all my love,
You are the rock and the wind beneath my wings,
To me you mean all the good things,
Warm gentle hands, a soft touch
Kind words, everlasting faith
Hopeful encouragement, a guiding love
Good humored advice, a pillar of strength
A deep well of wisdom
A heart that understands
The will to hold on
The courage to let go
Mum, you are one of a kind,
A special beauty and a rare find,
To me MOM means hero,
Without whom I would have been zero,
I love you MAMA,
My portrait of love.

O Love! thou makest all things even

That out of dust created man,
