Happy Mother’s Day, Moms!

(For Mother’s Day, I decided to write a poem as a tribute to mine and all of our mothers.)


Mom, I can’t begin to express how thankful I am for you

No matter what I’m going through, I have you to hold my hand through it all

You give me the best advice, even when you know I’m not going to listen

You help me learn through my mistakes, never with a hint of judgement

You forgive me after these mistakes, even when I don’t feel like I deserve it

You let me rant about the smallest problems, always making it known that you care

You always offer your shoulder to cry on, no matter how busy you are

You still offer a place in your bed when I have a nightmare or can’t sleep

You support me in everything I do, whether it be a sporting event or a performance

You have spent countless hours driving me to school and friends’ houses

You have made countless sacrifices to help me achieve my dreams

You make sure I have food on the table and clothes on my back

You make me soup when I’m sick and do whatever is needed to help me recover

You pay each year for me to have the best education I can get

You pray for me, always asking God to take away my pain

Even when you’re not in the same city, you call to hear about my day

You never ask me for anything in return

You never make me feel like a burden


I know that sometimes we fight, and our relationship still has room for improvement

I know I may not be the easiest child, and I have a lot of personal improvement to do

But I know that you will always be there for me

And I love you unconditionally

Thank you for being the best mother I could ever ask for
