"Your mother is always with you.
She is the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street.
Your mother lives inside your laughter, she is crystallized in every tear drop.
She is the place you came from, your first home.
She is the map you follow with every step that you take.
She is your first love and your first heart break...
and nothing on earth can separate you.
Not time, not space...not even death...will ever separate you from your Mother."
I love you so, I miss you so, I need you still.
