mom

mom
you made me
you gave to me
asking nothing in return
mom
you showed me the way
sometimes
pushed & shoved me
but always
hugged me
when i returned
mom
you were there
in times of despair
but
always shared
the best of laughter & love

mom
though you’re not here
i know you’re always near
your spirit sings
your wings
surround me
on this day
and
every

the tear
in my eye
is
one
of undying love

hugs & love……… mom
