Dear Mom

Every day as I wake, I strive to be better; for her and like her.

She has taught me to focus on the rainbow rather than the rain,

And showed me how to smile through the pain.

She has taught me what love is and how to love.

There is simply no one above her.

She picks me up when I am down, 

And takes me even higher when I am up.

I am thankful for her every day.

I have never felt more blessed to be around her,

Or prouder to call her mine.

She goes above and beyond for me,

As I will for her. We are a team. 

She is strong, she is fierce, she is bold, she is kind. 

She is loving, she is beautiful, she is my mother.
