Mom.. Today is the Day

When I was little and I cried
You lovingly held me, and let the last tear fall,
When I would scrape my knee
You’d bandage it up and say “be careful”.
When my birthday was horrible, you smiled
And promised the next would be perfect.
When I would lose my temper,
You had a way to calm me down.
When my friends left me behind,
You gave me ice cream and said
“they’ll come around”
When I had a nightmare
You’d tuck me in your bed and
Reassured me you’d never let harm find me.
When it was my graduation day
You threw me a party fit for a princess.
And made it a day I would always remember.
When the love of my life left me alone,
So sweetly you said, “This too shall pass.”
When I broke your heart with disappointment
You came to me and said, “I still love you”.
I know that you think that I forgot all this,
And take all you sacrificed for granted,
But that’s just not true.
At times I’m stubborn, as well as you,
But never doubt for half a second that
I love you.
Although I am growing up and someday soon,
I’ll have to bandage my own knee,
You’ll always be the bet mother.
And I’ll always be your little girl.

    This one brought me close to tears… it’s amazing the way you expressed it all in words! It’s as if you’re talking about our moms too! A mother, a friend and a supporter.. someone who’d give you self confidence and esteem, be there for you, give you all the strength you need no matter how bad and down you can be! A mom is the one who loves purely and unconditionally..
