"I love to fly. I always wanted to fly.

ninth floor, it was dangerous."

29. Untitled – Anonymous
A cute little ditty sure to get a giggle.
Mom I can't thank you half as much
As I think I oughta
You're my best friend and confidant
I'm your ever loving daughter
30. Mother of Mine - Betty Halverson
In appreciation of all those years she worked for your benefit.
How do I tell you, from this daughter
Oh mother of mine, who couldn't have worked harder
To make my life, as best as could be
How much you're loved, for loving me
31. From a daughter, a sonnet for my incomparable mother - Joanna Fuchs
Now that you're a mom too, the bond you share is all the tighter.
I often contemplate my childhood, Mom.
I am a mother now, and so I know
Hard work is mixed together with the fun;
You learned that when you raised me long ago.
32. My Mother - Anne Taylor
In remembrance of the greatest childhood memories.
Who fed me from her gentle breast,
And hushed me in her arms to rest,
And on my cheek sweet kisses prest?
When pain and sickness made me cry,
Who gazed upon my heavy eye,
And wept, for fear that I should die?
Who dressed my doll in clothes so gay,
And fondly taught me how to play,
And minded all I had to say?
Who ran to help me when I fell,
And would some pretty story tell,
Or kiss the place to make it well?
And can I ever cease to be
Affectionate and kind to thee,
Who was so very kind to me?
