MyMom and I_my25th_1

By Twinkle VanFleet

You Were The Arms That Held Me,
When Dreaming Kept Me Awake-

You Were The One Who Stood Beside Me,
When Growing Up Was Hard To Take.

You Were The One Who Encouraged Me,
To Be All I Could Be-

Sometimes, I Gave Up,
But Still, You Were There For Me.

And When You Thought You Had Failed,
I Was By Your Side-

Knowing There Are Many Choices,
You Chose One And Tried.

Thanks For Being My Friend,
You Are What All Moms Should Be-

I Love You, Mom,

Because Through It All-
You Were Loving Me.
