Remembering Mom by Kelly Roper
There are many things I'll remember
About my mom.
How soft her hands were,
How her eyes sparkled,
How her smile lit up her entire face.
I'll remember the hearty sound of her laugh,
And the tone of her voice when
Someone disappointed her.
But most of all, I'll remember how I felt
When she said to me, "I love you."
That was the best feeling in the world,
To know this very special woman
Loved me with all her heart.
Of all the memories that may dim
In the coming years,
That feeling is something I know
I'll never forget. And I just want to say,
I love you too, Mom.
