Who were you

before the first snow fell?


You were a


a daughter,

a sister


What were you

before the first flower bloomed?


You were a


a worker,

a friend


And then you became a mother

You were all these things,

but most importantly you became a


my mother,

our mother


You gave us everything

You still do


Because no matter what you were

no matter what you have or may become

you will always be
