Journey of a Mother.

Your mother is always with you. She’s the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street. She is the smell of certain foods you remember, flowers that you pick, and perfume she wore. She’s the cool hand on your brow when you’re not feeling well. She’s the breath in the air on a cool winter’s day. She is in the sound of the rain that lulls you to sleep, the colors of the rainbow, she is Christmas morning. Your mother lives inside your laughter. And she crystallizes in every tear drop. A mother shows you every emotion and all the while, hoping and praying that you will only know the good feelings in life. She’s the place you came from, you’re first home. And she’s the map you follow with every step you take. She’s your first love, your best friend. And nothing on earth can separate you, not time nor space. Not even death.

“To the Jackson Four, Rock on!”
