Defending her egg on the lake.
My mom is the queen of nature
And defender of homes.
She always lets me have
The last piece of food at the dining table.
My mom is the chef of all sweets in the world.
She is the gatekeeper of perfume land.
When I am sick, the bridge to heaven
Opens when she walks through the door.
When I yell for help
She is like a gust of wind ready to aid me.
Honest with people
Most unique in the world
Most secure woman I know
