Dear Mommy,


For the 18 years you’ve raised me, I am forever grateful. You’ve taught me love, patience, and never to be hateful. You’ve accepted me for me without question. And taught me to reflect when I didn’t quite get the lesson. Your words are like kisses when they reach my ear. No matter where you are—you always keep me near. 

I will forever love you. 


Like a pirate on a mission, I found my most valuable treasure. 

Your soul is like no other.

You forgive. Even when facing the truth makes it a little harder to live. 

You are strong. Learned to carry on even when all things have went wrong. 

Your smile is always the highlight of my day. Sometimes I look at you and don’t know what to say. 

You amaze me. And one day I’ll point to you telling my kid, “Look! That woman raised me.”

This poem is about: 
My family
