Mother Child Poem

No words can do justice to how me she owes her mother.

Never Enough

© Rachel N. Dolde

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 the who makes me whole, the one whom i owe my life to the forming of my soul.

The one who tucked me in at night the one who stopped my crying, the one who was an expert at picking up my lying.

The one who saw me off to school, And spent sad days alone, Yet magically produced a smile as soon as i came home.

The one who makes such sacrifices, to always put me first, who lets me test my broken wings, In spite of how it hurts.

Who paints the world a rainbow, when itís filled with broken dreams, who explains it all so clearly, when nothings what it seems.

Are there any words for this?
I find this question tough
Anything I want to say
just doesn't seem enough.

What way is there to thank you
For your heart, your sweat, your tears, for ten thousand little things you've done, For oh-so many years.

For changing with me as I changed with me as I changed, Accepting all my flaws,
not loving cause you had to but loving Just Because,

For never giving up on me, When your wits had reached their ends, for always being my best friend.

And so I come to realize, the only way to say, the only way to think you thats enough is clear in just one way.

Look at me before you, see what I've become, Do you see yourself in me?
The job that you have done

All your hopes and all your dreams, the strength that no one sees a transfer over many years, your best was passed to me.

Thank you for the gifts you give, for everything you do, but thanks mommy most of all for making dreams come true.
