I will be
Forever in debt
To my mother
Any gift
Would come up short
For all the love
For all the time
She invested in me
How can I ever repay her?
 
By using her love
For others
By taking care of myself
Loving myself
By being brave and kind
And doing what needs to be done
By sharing my love
My time
With you

(2015)

Mushy and cliche but also very true :)
