To My Backbone

Today is the 14th of May, 2017 which is marked as Mother's day. This means that I get to celebrate a special person today-My Mom. I could write numerous pages to express your tender love. I really appreciate you being my mom; I couldn't have asked for a better mom than you. If there is a next time mom, can I still be your daughter?

I really wanted to write a poem but I don't know how to write poems. I am really wishing I had taken my literature classes more seriously and paid more attention to my poems. 

You are like my backbone supporting my  lifeless body. Just like when the spinal cord gets damaged, the entire body gets paralyzed. When you are strong, it means that I will be strong.

When am falling down, you make sure that I am okay by taking the fall for me.

You are ready to become a servant in order to decorate me as a princess. You hide your sorrows and smile just to make sure that I am always smiling and happy.

You make sacrifices for me regardless of my selfishness. You love me with everything you have and expect nothing in return.

You are the shoulder I lean on when I am tired and looking for who to lean on. You give me listening ear when all ears are shut.

You are always there to correct me when I am wrong and tell me how to do better. You are my motivation when am feeling down.

Mom, I feel like screaming thank you and how much I love you but I am so sure it won't be enough to show how grateful I am for meeting you. 

Happy Mother's day MOM. I LOVE YOU and I know you already know that. 

Happy Mother's day to all Mothers out there. You all are the best.
