It isn’t said enough how grateful I am to have the life I do, all thanks to her. No matter what curve balls come my way in life, my mother is always there to intervene and take the hit for me. She’s the most courageous, passionate, brave, and beautiful person I’ve ever known.
Since the day you brought me into this world, you made it a point to continuously show me that there isn’t anything you wouldn’t do for me. I love you with all my heart mom and I can’t thank you enough for constantly showing up. Whether I’m in the right or the wrong, you have my back regardless, and for that I will be forever thankful. So this one is for you, mom, thank you for always pushing me to be the best version of myself.
For My Mother
You gave me everything,
even if it left you with nothing.
Without any hesitation,
you sacrificed to make me happy.
No price was too big to pay,
So long as I was smiling.
There’s nothing you wouldn’t do for me,
And because of that,
I will be eternally grateful.
Your bravery, courage, and independence
Are qualities I strive to achieve.
Without you to look up to,
I’d be confused and completely lost.
I hold you so close to my heart,
And one day I hope to become
Half the mother you are.
One day I hope to repay you,
For everything you’ve given to me.
Until then, know that I love you,
So much so that my heart aches,
Whenever you’re in pain.
You’re my person,
And the reason it’s so easy to smile.
You’re the reason
I try to be the best version of myself.
You’re my entire world, mom,
And there isn’t a day that goes by
That I wish anything were different.
So thank you for being you,
And making it so easy to be me.
There’s nothing you wouldn’t give,
And everything I would,
To be a bit more like you.
