Pearl of my heart - my mother

2015-04-29 09:24

MY mother, you are a treasure that words cannot express. The time, commitment, hard work and dedication are the immeasurable jewels you possess. I love the infinite hugs of selflessness, the priceless kisses that are countless, the wealth of encouragement that is limitless and the hope that I have buried in my heart because of you is faultless.

From the rich joy you bring, to the refuge and shelter I find under your wing. You are my sanctuary from the storm, your laughter echoes the walls of our home, your sunshine smile that brightens every room, I am the rose you planted in bloom.

I cherish every thought of you, your invaluable advice is the anchor to my soul, whenever I am shipwrecked, lost at sea, you are the beacon and lighthouse that leads me. In my endless search for the truth, I follow the map and discover you are my haven, my harbour, my home, my mom. I open a chest of precious memories that time can never erase.

Being loved by you has made this world a better place and nothing and no one can ever replace. I love you.

Y. Opperman
