You are my boss. Pure and simple. I spend my days, working hard to make sure you’re happy with me and my performance as your mom. I spend all my waking hours trying to keep you happy, healthy and satisfied. I want to please you. I want you to like me. I want to make you proud of me.
You are my soul mate. I live to bring you joy. I live to love you. I live to be with you. Your smile opens up my world. Your happiness brings peace to my heart. Your life gives meaning to my own life.
You are my best friend. I love laughing with you. I love learning from you. I love playing with you. I cherish our quiet times together: late nights’ singing and early morning smiles. Being with you gives me strength. Caring for you brings me joy. You make my every moment extraordinary.
You are my everything. You hold my hand, and I know I must be a decent human being to have such an extraordinary life to care for. If I weren’t, I’m sure I wouldn’t have gotten the chance to be your person. One smile from you and I feel like I am the best person in the world. How could I be anything else when I have the love of someone so special and amazing?
You are my dream come true, my one and only, my once in a lifetime. You’re proof that tenacity pays off. You’re proof that, sometimes, dreams do actually come true. You are my biggest, best, most wonderful life lesson. You are my sunshine, my over the rainbow and my little star. And, yes, I often wonder what you are and how come I’m so lucky to have you in my life.
You are all things poetic and all things amazing in my life. You are my sun, my moon, my world.
You are my child, my offspring, my baby, my daughter. And I live to be your mother, your person, your favorite. I live to be here with you.
Always know that your mother loves you beyond any and all reason and logic. Always remember how utterly miraculous you are to this woman who searched for you, who struggled to have you, and who considers herself the luckiest person in the world to get to be your mom. Always remember who you are and how special you are.
You are everything.
●●● Dedicated to my daughter, Roya, and all the mothers and babies out there in love with each other and growing stronger and more beautifully everyday.
