You were always there, from
You believed in me, when at times,
I didn't believe in myself.
You sacrificed to give me a better life.
You were a parent first, and a friend second.
When it seemed that I was alone,
you were there.
Your love is pure, and asks nothing
When I was a child you protected me from evil,
because I was helpless.
When I was a Teenager, you tried to protect me
Mom, as an adult, I find myself realizing what you
gave up for me. You did it for no reward, other than the
hope that I would become a good man.
Mom, as much as I love, respect, and care about you,
there are many others who are neglected and forgotten.
THIS IS A TRIBUTE TO ALL MOTHERS OUT THERE,
THOSE WHO DID THE RIGHT THING. THANK YOU.
YOU MAY NOT BE APPRECIATED NOW, BUT YOUR
LEGACY WILL STAND THE TEST OF TIME.
YOU TAUGHT ME THE GREATEST AND MOST IMPORTANT
LESSON OF ALL: THE MEASURE OF A PERSON IS NOT THEIR
WEALTH, BUT THEIR WORTH.
