A Mother’s Day Poem

You are tender care
the one who is always there
the one who cries my sorrows
the one who cleans my wounds
the one who eases my pain.
You are the teacher
who shapes the way I am
the guiding light when all goes dark
first in line praising all my marks
the one hand that always picks me up.
You are endless love
for no matter how far I reside
regardless of how hardheaded I act
or how ingrate I may become
you are always there to love me, Mom!
