My life changed the day you let me call you “Mother”
You embraced me and gently kissed me and that’s all I could remember
My mind failed to recall the last time I felt love so pure and tender
If we’ve just met each other, why does it feel like I’ve known you forever?
My heart swelled with joy and my soul leapt like a child as you walked closer
Everything didn’t seem to matter when you wrapped your arms around me and whispered, “My daughter.”
With love that never withers, my heart knows no barrier and there’s nothing too big to conquer.
I love you, Mom.
Dedicated to Robin Lim, my personal hero whom I proudly call Mother.
