Each year we take a day to pause,
To celebrate a worthy cause.
You, mom, were the heart of our home,
Words can’t express all in this poem.
A life of total selflessness,
Cooking, driving,…cleaning our mess!
Each day, each moment spent for us,
And putting up with so much fuss!
Your gentle smile and warm embrace,
Daily Mass, prayer…fills you with grace!
Your love for Christ beams in your eyes,
His love for you is no sur prise!
Eighty seven candles this year,
Still so vibrant, so strong…no fear!
The Saints and angels shout today:
“Keep fighting strong! Happy birthday!!”
