Justin Reamer


To whom I owe so much,
I wish to let you know that I love you,
All the year around,
And that I am grateful for all
That you have done for me.

You are the inspiration in my life,
And you taught me how to be good to others
And to be gracious, no matter what.

You taught me to turn the other cheek,
No matter what happened to me,
Good or bad.

You taught me to be selfless,
Always to care about other people before myself,
As you have always given to me;
You taught me how to be responsible
And to be a good man,
And I am thankful for that.

You sacrificed yourself when I had my troubles,
When I had adversaries who were coming after me,
When I was stuck in a deep depression that I could not get out of,
When I tried to find meaning in life,
And yet could not find happiness,
And when we had issues with our father.
I thank you for that, too.

Most importantly, you taught me what it means to love,
How Jesus would want us to act toward other people,
And what it means to be a true Christian
And a Child of God.
You taught me agape,
The most important love,
Sacrificial love,
To what is important to everyone in this world.
You have given that to me,
And I have given that to other people.
I thank you for it.

I want to say thank you for everything you do to me,
And to thank you for standing by my back for all these years,
And to wish you the best out of life,
Whether it is Mother's Day,
Your birthday,
Or another time of the year,
I wish to celebrate your love and
Your sacrifice every day of the year
And to celebrate your life forever.
Thanks, Mum, and I love you.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this poem on Mother's Day of 2012, and I wanted to thank my mum for every thing she did for me. She stayed by my side throughout all of my life, and she helped me through all of my hardships and obstacles in my life. She helped me with my adversaries, my depression, and my struggles with finding meaning in life. She also helped me when I had issues with my father, who left when I was eight years old. I wanted to thank her for everything, and this is her tribute. I don't think this is my best poem, but this is the one that is my personal tribute to Mum. Mum is my greatest fan and one of my best role models. I feel she deserves this.
