Happy birthday to the best mom in the world
Mom, on this day I want to dedicate a pledge to you.
In the years that I have known you,
your eyes showed love without any boundaries
and you had an understanding
in all of the things that I have done.
You have never judged
and never grew tired
of the endless stories that we had to tell.
You are a constant reminder of the woman
That I do admire and that I want to be
and there is something special
in the way that you do experience life
as if every day is a new blossom,
a gift of hope
and a evolution of the person
that you want me to be.
I do embrace all the things that you are.
Your philosophy and ideals
of the Bible is precious to me
and we both made a promise
to meet each other at the Advent.
You are to me a reincarnation
of all positive energies
and a devotee to all that is good
and a guru in whose footsteps
I try to follow
and you are the most precious gem to me.
You are our guiding light
and long after your journey has ended
we will still be reminded
of your light that shines in our hearts
but most of all you are a mother to me
and a very dear friend
and I do love you with all of my heart.
