Especially For You Mom

I'm writing this poem for you, mom
because I want this poem to be,
my own special way of showing you
how much you mean to me.
I have so much to say
and I don't think this poem will do,
but each word in between these lines
comes straight from my heart for you.
I know I haven't been a perfect son,
but you've taken things in stride,
and no matter how many problems I've had
you've always been by my side.
I could talk to you about whatever I felt,
because I knew that you'd understand,
all that you asked from me in return
was to stand up and be a man.
If I asked you for some advice
you never have told me no,
and if I made a dumb mistake
you've never said I told you so!
You've always treated me real special
and sometimes I don't understand why.
But when I think about how I've hurt you
it makes me want to cry.
This is an apology for the mistakes I've made
and the conflicts that we've had,
for all the times I've hurt you
and for all the times I've made you mad.
I wrote this especially for you mom,
this is my cry out to you.
To let you know how sorry I am
and how much I really love you.

My mom and I argue all the time. Maybe just because I'm still a teen and all. When I look back at it though, I feel so terrible for the things that I've done. This poem was beautiful and I wish I would have wrote it myself. You poem came out to me and hopefully many others that's done their mom wrong.

This poem shows the true love for a mother from a troubled son. It takes a true hearted person to put his thoughts into writing. May this man be blessed.
