Strength of ten horses
to see a crisis through
Soft as a rose petal
when she's feeling blue

Always has an answer
for whatever problem avails
If it's broken, she can fix it
with a glue gun and some nails

More talent than anyone 
should ever be allowed
Put her on any stage
and she can woo a crowd

Always the first one there
to help someone else
No matter what troubles
she's going through herself

Crazy and dramatic at times
calm and peaceful at others
In case you're wondering
I'm speaking of my mother

If I had a hero in these troubled times
it would have to be my mother
for all she has survived
Coming through stronger very single time

So this is for you, my sweet mother
for you have taught me all along
No matter how weak I feel
with yours and Gods help, I can be strong

Thank you for those endless nights
of fretting and praying over me
Making sure that I'm okay
or at least will someday be

I am the person I am today
all because of you
Even when we disagree
on what I'm supposed to do

I'm writing you this poem
to somehow let you know
I'm glad you are me mother
and that I love you so
