By Mark A. Leon

At birth, we are bestowed with the greatest gift, the eyes of a Mother, whose promise and blessing to nurture, shelter, love and foster a life of happiness for us is written in the stars

On this, our Mother’s Day, we remember the times, we embrace you

The butterfly kisses
Stories at night
“I loves you’s” just before bed
Hugs so close, so safe, so warm
The tears of joy
The gentle touch to wipe away the sadness
The gleaming eye at times of celebration
My biggest fan

There you are mom
Always and forever
My guiding light

Unconditional and without regret
You put your dreams on hold, so I may see mine through this glimmer of innocence and awakening
Holding me in your arms, my fears turned to hope
A new world unwrapped and you my first vision

My first steps, you were there holding my tiny fingers just before you let go
My first day of school, you held my hand all the way to the steps of the bus
My first scraped knee, you kissed it and healed it back to health
The first heartbreak, you shared stories until the sun rose to the sky

In school, I aspired by your example
In love, I sought the goodness of the heart
In life, I journey for happiness for me and you

On this, our Mother’s Day, I celebrate you
A woman of sacrifice
Unconditional and selfless love
A force of nature with a gentle breeze

I look back on the memories and see a future so clear
A home, a family, a place where fantasies come true
Just like you gave to me

Mother, a part of your soul remains in my heart all my days
I love you always and forever
My shining star

On this, our Mother’s Day, I am reminded of purpose, a gift given by you
A blessing, a protector, a friend and my mother
