Happy Mother's Day

Your mother is always with you...
She's the whisper of the leaves
as you walk down the street.
She's the smell of bleachin
your freshly laundered socks.
She's the cool hand on your brow
when you're not well.
Your mother lives inside
your laughter.
She's crystallized
in every tear drop.
She's the place you
came from,your first home...
She's the map you follow
with every step that you take.
She's your first love
and your first heart break...
and nothing on earth
can separate you.
Not time, Not space...
Not even death...
will ever separate
you from your mother...
You carry her inside of you...

What a beautiful poem, I am in tears. It's one of my very favorites. I also love the picture. I am assuming that is of Great Grandma Nida ( Yoder)?

Yes, the poem says what I feel about my mom in heaven. My family who are in heaven will never leave me for I hear their beautiful voices daily.I learnt so much from each of them. Not a day goes by that I don't miss them. Yes, that is my mom & your great grandma.
