A Poem for my Sons
Updated: May 18, 2022
I was the first one to believe you are amazing.
I cried for joy when you made your grand entrance.
I picked you up when you fell, helped you brush off, and encouraged you to try again.
I held your hand and promised to love you forever.
I was there for your biggest moments.
I have been your biggest and loudest cheerleader.
I taught you what I knew, even the things I didn't mean to.
I was there in your lowest moments and loved you anyway.
Broken dreams, broken hearts, even broken bones, I have helped to mend.
When you've hurt, I hurt and when you've rejoiced, so have I.
The times you've wished I were gone or that you could leave me - I've stood and stayed.
You can try to change me, replace me, or forget me, but I will always be a part of you.
I'll never abandon you, forget about you, or stop believing in you.
I was the first girl you smiled at, the first girl you kissed and the first girl you loved.
I am forever grateful God chose me to be your mom.
