My Mom, My Rock

You have always been my rock
when all else has seemed to fail!

I thank you from the utmost depth
of my being for being a supportive,
listening ear when I didn't deserve
it, realism in the face of fickleness,
truth when it seemed as if there
was none to be found, and
Above all-----

The strength I needed to recognize
there are unresolved issues and
problems within my own life.

I love you with all of my heart
and appreciate your daily,
selfless sacrifices.

I owe you my life and promise
I will do better and be all
I can be within reason!

Love Always, Julie

    I can relate to this completely. I grew up without a father, so my Mom was, and is everything to me. She has sacrificed so much for me, that there is no way that I could ever repay her. I don't know where I would be now, if it wasn't for her! This poem was beautifully written, Julie! Your Mom must be so proud of you!
