You are my heart and soul

Location

Thank you...

For standing by me through thick and thin

For not giving up on me when I didn't win

For your patience when I kept pushing you away

For caring when I said I didn't need you anyway

     I am grateful knowing...

I can count on your strength

Ask for your support, and know you'll go to any length 

When I lose my way

You help me get back on track

When in pain

Your comfort soothes and brings me back

I am lucky because...

When I was sad you gave me faith and hope

When I was confused you taught me how to cope

When I felt I couldn't go on

You carried me long miles

When I didn't believe

You restored my smiles

Mom, thank you...

For your guidance and the faith you've shown

For giving me a safe place where I have grown

For showing me how to strive

Because of your love

I will survive.
