Now we have reached a very special place. A very precious place. Now she is a perfect mother, a perfect woman, a perfect role model, a loving mother of every little child. A perfect mother every young child thinks of and wants to be like them. A mother who never leaves you alone. Always be with you till the last moment. Every year she is growing young with me. She is now 65 years old. She will live with me forever. In me forever and ever beyond. My beautiful mother, my queen mother, the most important to me. My Superstar, Legend.
