TO MY MOTHER: Poem by Irene Gisdaki

This day belongs to you
And I want you to smile
You deserve all congratulations
And the award of
The best mom.

Many happy returns
And many happy years to come.
I would reach the far end of this world
For you, my mom!

You are my friend, my sister,
And my mom.
You are all my life
And I love you so much.

Everything I am today
I owe to you
And I wrote this poem
To show you
How much I love you.
I love you very much Mom!
