You have given to me the precious gift of life,
And a wonderful place for me to call my home.
But most of all, you have freely given to me,
The greatest unconditional love, I've ever known.
I feel blessed having been born out of your love,
For you wanting me, without knowing who I'd be.
And now you know who I am, not a day has past,
When I have ever felt that you did not want me.
Without me ever needing to ask for it from you,
You've always been right here for me over the years.
Sharing in so many smiles, as you have felt my joy,
And comforting me in sorrow, wiping away my tears.
You have taught me so much over the many years,
Some I was too young to remember, but lots I do.
But those not remembered, are still part of me,
And I've become who I am today, because of you.
Although I am "my own person", an individual,
I'm thankful that so much of you lives inside me.
If I'd been able to choose my own personality traits,
It would have been yours, that I wanted them to be.
I just want you to know how much I do love you,
And have appreciated everything you have ever done.
I could not have asked for a more special parent,
As in my
heart, you will forever be, my number ONE!
