Happy Birthday Mom!

Today is my mom's birthday. I don't have much to say, but I will be thinking about her all day. I found this poem and I just want to share it. I will post the card I made for her later.

As each passing day goes by
A tear falls from my eye
With each day passing me
A memory comes to mind
Without you by my side
Tears and memories compile
Until we meet again
My memories will form a mountain
A mountain unclimbable
My tears will form an ocean
An ocean uncrossable
You are my angel
You are my light
Guiding me through my days
And protecting my nights
You may be gone
But you’re not forgotten
You’re my angel now
But my Mommy you'll be
Until we meet again
I cry these tears
I release these memories
I shall climb my mountain
I will cross my ocean
One day soon
I will be at your side
I will be in your arms
I shall be safe once more

Happy Birthday Mommy
Love will be on the wings of my angel!!

Have a great day!


  1. Buffy, my heart and prayers are with you today! What a beautiful poem and wonderful way to remember your mom today! Wishing you well!

  2. Buffy, I do understand how you feel today. The poem you found is extremely touching. My mother's birthday is also this month on the 17th. I am making a copy of the poem so I have it later this month. My thoughts and prayers are also with you today.
