To The Most Wonderful Mom

~Elizabeth Verone


From the first day you knew

That I would grow;

Spread my wings and someday go.

 

From the first day you knew

What you thought I would be.

You knew all the dreams

You had for me.

From the first day you said,

I know She will do great

And wonderful things.

 

From the first day you said that

You loved me more

Than life itself.

 

From the first day you said

She will marry a prince.

From the first day you saw me you knew

That I would love you unconditionally.

From the first day you knew that God had given you the most precious gift.

 

Dedication:

For every parent that has ever had to leave too soon.
