A Daughter's Promise

A Daughter's Promise
© Allie B. Quaglieri

Every time that I smile,
Every time that I sigh,
I think of your face,
And a tear escapes my eye.

You were my world,
My inspiration and my heart,
But when you left me,
I thought I would fall apart.

You were my best friend,
My one true 'confidante',
And that's not all you were,
You were also my mom.

I didn't want to live without you,
But you would have wanted me to,
And if there's anyone I want to make happy,
That anyone is you

I would have given anything to have you back,
But I know now that it was meant to be,
For you are still watching from up there,
And I know you're watching me.

I'll make you proud mom,
I'm going to fulfill your wish,
You're going to see me and smile,
That's a daughter's promise.

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there...past, present and future!

I was thinking about you earlier today. I'm sure today is a bit bittersweet for you, but I hope you have a wonderful day and your husband and son do something special for you!

I hope you felt your Mom's presence with you yesterday on your first Mother's Day. I can do birthdays and holidays just fine but it's always Mother's Day that gets to me.
