A poem telling my mom how much she means to me, how much I appreciate all she's done for me, how I feel about her, and that I should have told her sooner.
Mom writes poems, too, and taught me how writing helps you deal with things in life. Like a form of counseling. She wrote me a really special poem when I graduated from 8th grade, and it was that poem that made me really understand how much I mean to her and how well she really knows me.

I donít think I ever told you,|
how much I appreciate the things you do.
You have been there when I cried,
and always known when Iíve lied.
You taught me how to read and sing,
and punished me when I did the wrong thing.
You were there to tell me goodnight,
and always knew how to make things all right.
I look up to you, Mom,
and I love you very much.
I donít know what it would be like
without your loving touch.
You will always come first in my heart,
no matter how far we are apart.
Mom, I have not told you,
I donít know where Iíve been.
Youíre not only just my mother,
youíre forever my best friend.
Happy Mothers Day
