Mom

Mom 

The women whose love is so evident in life lessons, rights, and wrongs 

the lesson that was most important was the lesson on how to be strong.

 

 You wrap yourself in a ribbon of pink 

Its effects evident by the hair left in the sink 

 

Tears are hidden behind smiles and laughter

There is no one else I would rather model after 

 

You have taught me its okay to not be okay 

That despite the tears I’m strong anyway

 

Throughout hospital and doctor visits

There is so much strength you elicit 

 

Of your courage envious I will always be

But your lessons mean the most to me

 

I know our time is limited and short

But I want to thank you for all the lessons, love, and support
