100% genuine and real
Always kind and sincere

Honest to the core
Loyal forever more

Lingering there in the shadows
Doesn’t know how to say no

Helps anyone in need
Hides behind the scenes

Gives every project all her undivided attention
Often into the wee hours of the night again and again

Quick with heartfelt hugs and a smile
Always goes the extra mile

Loves unconditionally with all her heart
Finishes everything she starts

A concern for others all the time
A woman of great inner strength and family pride

Takes care of everyone else
But regularly neglects herself

Holds my hand even when she is not near
I know without a doubt that she is always there

Listens with an understanding ear
Calls all those she loves dear

Always reliable and selfless
A little bit devious and appears tireless

A little camera shy
Not one to ever tell a lie

Avoids the bright spotlight
Loves her children with all her might

A true and honest friend with a heart of gold
I consider her a sister and I love her so
