Today I talked to you because
I felt like touching the sky
     And finding the wings to fly.
I can’t imagine all the things you have done for me.
Angels are famous for their kindness.
     What about you?
Can I ever describe your kindness?
     My heart
          My feelings
               Say so many different things.
You are a person with a heart full of amazing feelings,
     A mind full of beautiful thoughts,
          And hopes full of hope for a peaceful world.
Mom, I love you.
