Thanks Mom For Who We Are

She gave me life

And SHE gave me a wife

The shes are our mothers

And there are no others.

They nurtured us for the life ahead

Drilling lessons and responsibilities into our heads

They didn’t spare the rod or a backhand

But now that we are parents, we understand.

We give them credit for who we are

No handbooks for raising us, but they made par.

The good we kept, the mistakes we let go

Since they couldn’t go back to make it so.

We turned out just fine in a way

So this poem is for our mothers on Mother’s Day.

Happy Mothers Day Anna M. H. and Sylvia M. H.
