This mother’s day, I’d like to say
Thanks to my mom for the help along the way.
For the words of wisdom, I didn’t always want to hear
For always whispering that you love me in my ear.
Thanks for the kindness and times of fun
For making sure from my fears I didn’t run.
For the push when I needed it
And a shoulder to cry on
You have endured much as the years have gone.
For the help with math, and the frustration that it brought
For all of that you deserve a lot.
For the times we laughed until we cried
When we reminisced on memories between you and I.
For the times when I you called in tears
You rushed to the rescue, you are always near.
For the things you encouraged me to do
For all the times you didn’t say “I told you.”
You had to put up with many firsts
Having a daughter means emotions come in bursts.
From a first heartbreak and all the friend drama
You’ve always been a supportive mama.
You make sure I use common sense
When I’ve been accused you come to my defense.
People say I look like you
To me, this is a dream come true.
You have left some big shoes to fill
That’s what happens when you follow God’s will.
You pour scripture over me
I can feel the prayers you pray sincerely.
You’re my mom and I wouldn’t trade you for the world
Because of you I’m one blessed girl.
