The Wind Beneath My Wings

It was my mom's birthday the other day. I called her on the phone and as expected she was so happy to hear my voice again and my greetings. As most of you may not know, I have been away from my homeland for a long time since I decided to take my chances abroad to support my family.It has been awhile since I last embraced my mom during her birthday.

My mom , Im proud to say , is the greatest mother I have ever known in this world. There was no time I can remember that she makes me sad even for a second of my life.
My world with her has been so bright and beautiful. I even almost forgot that I am not perfect because she makes me believe that I have everything one can ever have in life. When I am down she easily release those encouraging words that washes my fears away. And whenever we need something or needed help she acts so swiftly like the Rescue 911 in America. She never gets tired of doing things that concerns her children and to our dad. For me she is a treasure in my life, the greatest gift I can ever have from God.

There is this song that reminds me of my mom. A song that has been played for so many years. It is Bette Midler's " The Wind Beneath My Wings ". Whenever I hear the song I can see her ever smiling face in my mind.

Thank you Nay. You stand tall as my hero....The wind beneath my wings...


" The Wind Beneath My Wings "
By Bette Midler

It must have been cold there in my shadow,
to never have sunlight on your face.
You were content to let me shine, that's your way.
You always walked a step behind.

So I was the one with all the glory,
while you were the one with all the strength.
A beautiful face without a name for so long.
A beautiful smile to hide the pain.

Did you ever know that you're my hero,
and everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
for you are the wind beneath my wings.

It might have appeared to go unnoticed,
but I've got it all here in my heart.
I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it.
I would be nothing without you.

Did you ever know that you're my hero?
You're everything I wish I could be.
I could fly higher than an eagle,
for you are the wind beneath my wings.

Did I ever tell you you're my hero?
You're everything, everything I wish I could be.
Oh, and I, I could fly higher than an eagle,
for you are the wind beneath my wings,
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings.

Oh, the wind beneath my wings.
You, you, you, you are the wind beneath my wings.
Fly, fly, fly away. You let me fly so high.
Oh, you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings.
Oh, you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings.

Fly, fly, fly high against the sky,
so high I almost touch the sky.
Thank you, thank you,
thank God for you, the wind beneath my wings
