Dear Mother

Dear Mother,

Oh the things you have taught me

The experiences you have shared with me

The memories you have made with me

Dear Mother

Oh the times you pushed me to strive higher

The rewards I received because of you

The celebratory hugs you shared with me

Dear Mother

Oh the things you have put up with because of me

The words I said but did not mean

The shoulder you lent for me to cry on

Dear Mother

Oh where would I be without you

The person you have raised me to be

The gratitude I will always owe to you

This poem is about: 
My family
