(In memory of my mother's last birthday)
Memories that shined through the years,
have always reflected your heart.
Let the memories we create today,
be forever known as the start,
of our future as mother and daughter.
May these flowers show your beauty,
and your love for life.
May you never shed another tear, and
our dreams of happiness and strength,
be at hand.
I Love You Mom
