All You Are To Me
© Jessie Sanders
Thank you, Mom…
for the love, strength, and care
for in this world that is quite rare
for being my guardian and my guide
on those sad days when I cried
I’m proud of you because…
you never gave up hope when the times were hard
you kept going forward through it all, yard by yard
you have never let others change who you are
you have always shown me that you’re my favorite star
you move through the unknown with strength
no matter how far the length
I would have never been here today….
without your motherly advice
without your ultimate sacrifice
without the support I needed
I never would have succeeded
without your unbounded love
I could never stay above
I just wanted you to know….
I will always stand by your side
I will give back and be your guide
I will fight for you in the hard times
even if all I have are a few dimes
I will never lose my faith in you
my love for you is always true
I will always be there
on those days you are hurt and sad
and you feel everything is going bad
I will hold you in my arms and say
I’m glad to be with you here today
when you feel you are alone
I will be your chaperone
So thank you, Mom,
I love you so much!
never forget, the support and love I have for you will never diminish,
you are one of the strongest people I know,
so don’t let anyone else’s evil decisions or careless actions
change who you are today.
you are better than all of them and stronger in every way.
from your son’s heart
