An Ode to Mom

​Happy Birthday MoM 😍😘😍😘😍😘😍
Never Enough
Sometimes We know the words to say to give thanks for all you’ve done,

 but then they fly up and away as quickly as they come.

How could We possibly thank you enough, the one who makes us whole,

 the one to whom we owe our life, the forming of our soul.

The one who tucked us in at night, the one who stopped our crying, 

the one who was the expert at picking up when we were lying.

The one who saw us off to school and spent sad days alone, 

yet magically produced a smile as soon as we came home.

The one who makes such sacrifices to always put us first, 

who lets us test our broken wings, in spite of how it hurts.

Who paints the world a rainbow when it’s filled with broken dreams, 

who explains it all so clearly when nothing is what it seems.

Are there really any words for this, we find this question tough, 

anything we want to say just doesn’t seem enough.

What way is there to thank you for your heart, your sweat, your tears, 

for ten thousand things you’ve done for oh so many years.

For changing with me as we changed, accepting all my flaws,

 not loving ’cause you had to, but loving just because.

For never giving up on us when your wits had reached its end, 

for always being proud of us, for being our best friend.

And so we come to realize, the only way to say,

 the only thank you that’s enough is clear in just one way.

Look at us before you see what we have become, 

do you see yourself in us, the job that you have done?

All your hopes and all your dreams, the strength that no one could see,

 a transfer over many years, your best was to pass to me(us).

Thank you for the gifts you give, for everything you do,

 but thank you mommy most of all for making our dreamscome true.
