A MOTHER'S JEWEL:
(i wrote this as the opening poem
of my book "Written From The Heart".
You are the pearl within the oyster,
The stars that shine by night.
You have shared with me some dark days
You have helped me through my plight.
To me you're a jewel that's priceless,
One with a heart of gold.
You have warmed the very soul of mine,
When my life was very cold.
Thank you my dear daughter,
You're a treasure beyound compare.
Should you need me anytime,
It goes without saying I'll be there.
My burden you have lightened,
You're a special kind of girl.
As I have already mentioned,
You're my jewel, you're my pearl.

PS: Sadly I am not in her life anymore,
But she's still within my heart.
I'm still at a loss to know
Why we had to part.
