To mothers of the world

I found this beautiful poem and speaks volumes of the way I feel on mothers day. I lost my mother when I was young. My memories of her are still there and strong and full of love. I just want her to know if I can be half the mother she was then I will be happy.
Miss you mummy...

for all the mothers who miss their mothers

I often contemplate my childhood, Mom.
I am a mother now, and so I know
Hard work is mixed together with the fun;
You learned that when you raised me long ago.

I think of all the things you gave to me:
Sacrifice, devotion, love and tears,
Your heart, your mind, your energy and soul--
All these you spent on me throughout the years.

You loved me with a never-failing love
You gave me strength and sweet security,
And then you did the hardest thing of all:
You let me separate and set me free.

Every day, I try my best to be
A mother like the mom you were to me.
