She didn’t give me her eyes,
but somehow we see the world the same way.
There are so many other gifts,
She gave to me that I appreciate every day.
She shows me courage,
and taught me not to care what others say.
She shows me strength,
and possesses a beauty that will never decay.
I may be biased,
but my feelings I can’t betray.
She is mother and my hero,
and my eyes will always see her this way.
