A Love Story

Our love story started over twenty-five years ago. She is why I am who I am today. The reasons and the motives. Beautiful from the outside yet strong and persistent from the inside. She’s the most important woman in my life.

She is selfless with her love, unconditionally caring and tending to my every need and want. Whether it be a growling stomach or sleepless nights buried in books she was always there to make everything better. She is my backbone, the foundation to my everything. A timeless relationship that could never be erased. A relationship even Romeo and Juliet would be jealous of.

She was my first kiss, my first breath of fresh air, my first hug. The first woman to wipe my tears and tell me that everything is going to be alright. She embodies the memories I will always cherish. The only good memories about home. She taught me how to be a man, how to think out and how to react to things. She is why I’m alive, why I keep on living.

This woman is my mother.
