I believe this was a poem I wrote for my mother on Mother’s Day.

Full Text:

Mom,
I really want to thank you for drying my tears.
For only you know how.

 I want to thank you for helping me when I wanted to give up.
You always give me hope.

 Mom,
Thank you for smiling, even when you had a bad day.
Your smile lights the world.

Thank you for surprising me with something special when you come home from work.
That’s when I know you’ve been thinking of me throughout the day.

 Mom,
Thank you for making me laugh when my day was blue.
I would 
be blue now if it wasn’t for you.

Thank you for taking the time to tuck me in at night.
hope you always will.

 Mom,
Thank you for taking me to special places.
I love to spend time 
with my one and only mom.

Thank you for teaching me all I need to know.
I’d flunk without you.

Mom,
Thank you for loving me more than you can say.
I love you just as much.

Thank you for putting a smile on my face.
I couldn’t 
go without one.

 Mom,
I really want to thank you for taking me to church.
That way 
I know there is only one God.

 Thanks.

Your daughter,
Erica
