We Don't Thank You Enough


You raise

You grow

You help flourish

You teach

And you learn

And you experience

And you impart that experience

On a generation of learners

A generation that needs to be taught

You sacrifice

And you cry

Because so much do you love

You harry and you hurry

And you work your fingers till they bleed

You give them what they want

Neglecting what you need


A provider

A fighter

A rock that supports

A lover

You are a mother

Is there any better job

You nurture from the womb

And you stretch that protection

To the future and beyond

A mother

A shoulder that absorbs tears

A lighthouse in the dark


The job is very demanding

The pay is usually not near enough

The road is very rocky

But you chalk it up

To the endlessness of love

The darkness is visible

And the light always seems to

Hide behind the hurt

And the prevalence of evil

That makes so much harder your job

And the tears in the middle of the night

Never sway your resolve


The benevolent queen

The forgiving angel

The strict discipline giver

The mother

That’s all that you are

The woman who gives her all

Because her all

Is what will bring her peace of mind

When they are all grown up
