Sweetest mother, gem of mine.

With whom I share my love for wine.

You are the woman I admire,

I’ve seen you walk right through the fire.

You have done everything for me,

For that I’m thankful, eternally.

You can be sweet but also hurtful,

Watch your mouth! Please be careful.

That’s what you do; speak your mind,

You are so fearless and inclined.

I envy your moxie; I envy your voice,

I envy your spirit to always rejoice.

You’re always happy (or so I thought),

I see the woes that life has brought.

Don’t worry, mother, for I am here,

I see the sadness in every tear.

I’m older now and I have learned,

I shouldn’t have left and not return.

We are much closer; no longer apart,

I’m sorry mother, for breaking your heart.
