A framed poem or quote. Its a very nice gift. She had the frame and cut this quote in which is a sheet from a book. I think its from the dedication page. She says this is how she feels about me. We do not know if this is part of a poem or just a quote from Elizabteth Browning.
Here it is
“I love there with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saint, - I love thee with the breath
Smiles, tears, of all my life! and if God choose,
I shall love thee better after death”
With the dash in the second line does that mean a part was removed? I assume some have heard of this writer. Its a very nice prebirthday gift. She framed it herself. Proud of her for her talent. I hope all your moms feel this way towards you.
