I find myself wondering…
Did I remember to thank you
For all that you have done for me?
For all of the times you were by my side
To help me celebrate my successes
And accept my defeats?
Or for teaching me the value ot hard work,
Good judgement, courage, and honesty?
I wonder if I’ve ever thanked you
For the simple things…
The laughter, smiles, and quiet times we’ve shared?
If I have forgotten to express my gratitude
For any of these things,
I am thanking you now…
And I am hoping that you’ve known all along,
How very much you are loved and appreciated.
Today is Mother’s Day. And I’d give anything to spend it with you. If only you weren’t so far away. If only I could speak to you in person. If only I could hug you once more right now. I still remember, standing there as you walked away. Standing there as you left. And I walked off without trying to think about how long it’d be before I got to see you again. But I miss you mum. All the time.
And I wish I was you were here with me right now. To share the laughter and tears, as I go through life’s journey. I wish you were here to push me to achieve what I can. To guide me through the rough times. To tell me that you know what I’m going through, and to tell me that I’ll be alright.
I want you to know, that I’m sorry for giving you a hard time growing up. For not understanding that everything you’ve done was to protect me. And that I’ve always appreciated you being around.
I miss you mum. And I love you.
