To My Mother's Daughter

Iíll be all around you
an aura of mystery
to stir your psyche
and make you move,
to guide you on
and goad your mind.
Donít be surprised
to find me there.
My life is in your heart.
Iíll bring you flowers
if you but think on
what Iíve given you.
My love is everlasting.
Itís a trust, remember?
I give you but your own.
Your talents are my love.
I gave you life,
a joy to hold on to
Live it.
