~*NO WORDS GREAT ENOUGH FOR YOU*~


If I held a dictionary
upside down, and shook the words free
as if emptying a drawer,
and all of those perfect words
lay at my disposal,
it would be impossible to find words
with such eloquence or grace
to tell you how much
of an honour it is to be your daughter
and how much
I admire you,
respect,
adore,
and
love you,
Mom

Melissa,
     There really is no better way to say "I love you, Mom!"  I know that she is thrilled with this poem.  Great work!  I love the thought in this one!

Melissa, what a great way to explain exactly how there aren't enough words. This is one of my favorites - it's printing right now.
