Mom, you're my Heart and Soul

Thank you...
For standing by me through thick
and thin
For not giving up on me when I
didn't win
For your patience when I kept
pushing you away
For caring when I said I didn't need
you anyway
I am grateful knowing...
I can count on your strength
Ask for your support, and know
you'll go to any length
When I lose my way
you help me get back on track
When in pain
your confort soothes and brings me back
I am lucky because...
When I was sad you gave me faith
and hope
When I was confused you taught me
how to cope
When I felt I couldn't go on
you carried me long miles
When I didn't believe
you restored my smiles
Mom, thank you
for your guidance and your faith
you've shown
For giving me a safe place where I
have grown
For showing me how to strive
Because of your love
I will survive

    I'm glad you found the power you needed in your mother, this is a lovely tribute to her, and a commemoration to the chastity of good mothers everywhere. Bravo Octavia (Report) Reply
