For all the things I didn’t say,

About how I felt along the way —

For the love you gave and the work you’ve done,

Here’s appreciation from your admiring son.

You cared for me as a little tot,

When all Idid was cry a lot,

And as I grew your work did too —

I ran and fell and got black and blue.


I grew some more and it didn’t stop;

Now you had to become a cop,

To worry about mistakes I’d make;

You kept me in line for my own sake.


I got older, and the story repeated;

You were always there whenever I needed.

You guided me and wished me the best,

I became wiser and knew I was blessed.


So, for all the times I didn’t say,

The love I felt for you each day,

Mom, read this so you can always see

Just how much you mean to me.


Mom, thanks for everything.


I love you Mom. Happy Mother’s Day.
