There is an understanding between you and I
about what it takes to be a Mother
what secret sacrifices the world may never know
that we have given for our own
Though somehow I see when I look in the mirror
in the times that wear me thin
the vision of all you had given
with only me in return
Thank you for that which you gave and what you have lost.
Thank you for teaching me to be strong enough to give of myself and to lose when necessary.
Thank you for always being behind me to tie up the laces of my Life
to let me walk down the long road alone.
And for giving me the key to always return when Life is too much.
You are extraordinarily beautiful, Mom.
Happy Mother’s Day.
