My mom wrote this when she was 15 yrs old. I was impressed by it. Let me know if you like it or not. :-)

My Mother

The patience,

Understanding,

the love you've shown me…

Will always

remind me

of who I should be.

.

So gentle,

forgiving,

so able to cope…

With whatever

fate sends you

You won't give up hope!

.

My Mother,

my guardian,

my teacher,

my friend-

.

You have shown me the way,

When there was no way to be shown.

You have lighted my path,

When you carried no light.

.

There's a place in my heart

Your love will be kept,

I've locked it up tight,

and there is no key left.

.

I could never thank you

for everything you've given me,

My Mother, my friend,

You will always be.
