A Poem For Auntie

Sometimes I know the words to say
Give thanks for all you've done
But then they fly up and away
As quickly as they come

How could I possibly thank you enough
The one who makes me whole
The one to whom I owe my life
The forming of my soul

The one who tucked me in at night
The one who stopped my crying
The one who is an expert
At knowing when I am lying

The one who makes such sacrifices
To always put me first
Who lets me test my broken wings
No matter how much it hurts

Who bought my first phone card
Who endured my boring days
Who always said something funny
That mattered in oh-so-many ways

For accepting me as I changed
Accepting all my flaws
Not loving 'cause you had to
But loving just because

For never giving up on me
Even when your nerves had reached the end
For always being proud of me
For being my best friend

So thank you Auntie for everything
Thank you for letting me cheat
That's how I always win
Thank you for letting me be spoiled
And most of all thank you for being there
To the very end!
