Dear Mom

Dear Mom, I’m here to say
the things I can’t tell you directly;
The words I’m afraid to tell
in front of our family.

Dear Mom, thank you for your love
that knows no bound;
Your soft and gentle touch
that cures any wound;
The nights you gave up sleep
when I am sick;
And your encouraging words
when they call me weak.

Dear Mom, I’m sorry for those tears,
for making your cry;
The yells I gave you
for covering up my lie;
And the curses I threw at you,
telling you to die.

But Dear Mom,
now I’m proud to say I love you;
And if I was born again
I’d still pick you.
