My Guiding Light
She is brave and full of strength, she has taught me to achieve,
She's a builder, a true giver, one who believes in me.
Full of drive and motivation she is focused on a goal,
As a mother, wife and teacher she gives her heart and soul.
With her intellect and tact she provides advice to all,
Her encouragement and support help to lift me when I fall.
She showed me how to face all the strife that life can bring,
"If you put your mind to it," she said "you can do anything."
She taught me to succeed by doing my very best,
I learned from her to grow from each and every test.
She provided me with all the tools I need to thrive,
Through her very own example she has taught me how to strive.
Her guiding strength and light have taught me far more than I know,
With her wisdom and true faith she has shown me where to go.
She forged a path with passion, creating a place all of her own,
A place of warmth and of beauty that I'm lucky to call home.
