You had been part of my life from the beginning ...
and when I lost you, it seemed too soon.
Still, I see your smile everywhere
your love for everyone and everything only made me love you more. It didn't seem fair that such a bright and loving spirit could be taken away from me. I didn't understand.
In time, I came to realize that you're still somehow so close to me ...
through your absence you taught me that a mother's love is eternal and transcendent. And that is the most beautiful love of all.
Mom, I love you so much.
