A poem about the strongest most loving person on earth, my mom.



Thank you, mother
For being my violin strings
Always playing beautifully for me
Thank you for teaching me my prayers
To recite genuinely to my savior
Thank you, mama for being my tireless backbone
Enduring stresses with love and compassion
Thank you for my happy home
You're the world's grandest sweetheart
Nah....that's an understatement

You're a precised cut diamond
Who always kept tryin
Lift me up
Never broke me down
Thank you for keeping your marriage together
Thank you for your forgiveness in my many moods of weather
Thank you mama for being my tireless backbone
Enduring stress with love and compassion
Thank you for my happy home
I've been privileged to grow in
You're the world's grandest sweetheart
Nah....that's an understatement

Thank you for your tireless work ethic
Thank you for the endless morning and evening smiles, kisses, and hugs
Thanks for all the I love you's
Thanks for the lectures
Always looking after your second daughter
You are timeless
You are the strongest woman I know
Mother, my precised cut diamond
Thank you, for being my backbone.
