I couldn't give it up to daddy to without saying anything about mama. I was going to write a poem for her but I couldn't think of a word to rhyme with I did however find this nice peoms that sum up how I feel.

When you need someone
to stand beside you,
Mom is near ...
When you need someone
to hear your troubles,
She will hear ...
When you need someone
to share your burden,
She will share ...
When you need to know
that someone loves you,
Mom is there.
-Thomas J. Langley

A mother's love asks no return,
expects no reward ...
a mother's love asks only to give.
A mother's heart will always know the feelings words can't always show."
- (Unknown)

You spend a lifetime trying to get them off the ground.
You run with them until you're both breathless.
They crash. They hit the rooftop.You patch and comfort, adjust, and teach.
You watch them lifted by the wind and assure them that someday they'll fly.
Finally, they are airborne.They need more string and you keep letting it out.But with each twist of the ball of twine,there is a sadness that goes with joy.
The kite becomes more distant, and you know it won't be long before that beautiful creature will snap the lifeline that binds you two together and will soar as it is meant to soar,free and alone.
Only then do you know that you did your job.
