You filled my days with rainbow lights,
Fairy tales and sweet dream nights,
A kiss to wipe away my tears,
Gingerbread to ease my fears.

You gave the gift of life to me,
And then in love, you set me free.
I thank you for your tender care,
For deep warm hugs and being there.

I hope that when you think of me
A part of you
You'll always see.


You may not have gone to law school,
But you laid down the law in our house,
From the oldest to the youngest,
All the way to your loving spouse.

You may not have gone to med school,
But you knew every treatment in the book,
For aching stomachs, cuts and bruises,
You treated them all; whatever it took.

You may not have been trained as a teacher,
But you taught us more than any school could,
Applying book knowledge to the reality of life,
In ways that we loved and understood.

You may not have won first prize for anything,
But you have won it in your family's heart,
I wouldn't trade you for another mom,
Nothing will ever separate or keep us apart.
-Hillary Ascalon

For all the times that I forgot to "thank you,"
For all the special, little things you do,
For all the words that sometimes go unspoken,
I need to say "I love you, Mom... I do."

I love you for the way you stop and listen,
And for your support throughout the years,
For teaching me the meaning of compassion,
And sharing in my triumphs and my tears.

And if, at times, I may have seemed ungrateful,
I want to say "I truly hope you see,
That nothing you have done has been forgotten,
And day by day, you mean more to me."
