- What Matters
You were always just so happy to be alive.
When I was around you, I got a special feeling inside.
If I ever went to visit you, a smile was spread across your face.
I could never see any sadness in you; there was never a trace.
The way you acted was like an angel.
It was never for yourself, you were always acting for others.
You were so selfless; a role model for me.
I hope that is the way I will be.
You also had a wonderful sense of humor,
And your laugh was truly unique.
If I was ever feeling down or sad,
You'd pick me up with that humor you've always had.
Even though you were not my biological mother,
I still looked up to you all the same.
In my life, somehow you are still here.
Your place in my heart I will hold dear.
