I've tried to write so many times,But it's been hard to say in rhymes.I'll try once more and hope you'll seeJust what your love has meant to me.Thank you for your pain at birthThat brought me to my life on Earth.Thanks for all the time you spentFor cuddles and your nourishment.Thank you for the stories readAs I lay cozy in my bed.Thanks for your enlightenmentTo solve new mysteries life had sent.Thank you for the cures and careWhen sickness caught me unaware.Thanks for tucking me in tightAnd kisses on my head, "Good night."Thanks for comfort when I criedAnd tissues used for tears you dried.Thanks for courage to go on,To see from night, a day will dawn.Thanks for freedom that you gaveTo go outside, the world to brave.Thank you for the friends I'd meetThat helped with friendships I'd repeat.Thank you for your help with schoolAnd teaching me the Golden Rule.Thanks for praise when I prevailedAnd understanding when I failed.Thanks for parties that you gaveAnd birthday cards I tried to save.Thanks for meals I loved so muchAnd baking skills that few could touch!Thank you for your help to writeMy stories you helped bring to light.Thanks for helping talents surfaceThat made me see my life had purpose.Thanks for tears when I left home,So I could make it on my own.Thanks for tears when I returnedFor visits that you long had yearned.But now...Your life I loved has run its course, For time will take us all by force.Your love for me, not kept inside,And no conditions were applied.So, thanks for all things, small and large,Your love saw fit to do ... no charge.
A beautiful and touching poem to your mother.
