You Are The Reason

 

Yours was the first face I saw.

Yours was the first touch I felt.

Yours was the first love I knew.

You are the reason I am here.

 

Yours was the first smile that warmed me.

Yours was the first voice that soothed me.

Yours were the first arms that held me.

You are the reason I thrive.

 

You were the first to believe in me.

You were the first to teach me.

You were the first to encourage me.

You are the reason I am strong.

 

You are the reason I love.

You are the reason I nurture.

You are the reason I succeed.

You are the reason I survive

 

Dearest mother...

I will always need your love

and you will always have mine.

You are the reason...
