I remember
the moment of enlightenment
the moment
I first realized
Mom was also
a woman

Just like me

Learning
Growing
Doing the best she can
making the best decisions
she knows how

A child herself
raising children
showing them love
giving them confidence
teaching them faith
believing in their dreams

A woman herself
who laughs and cries
sometimes insecure and unsure
with hopes and dreams
beliefs about life
and all that it’s meant to be

Just like me
mothers day

considerate and helpful

Sometimes Moms

forget all the things they do
forget all the things they have done

Sometimes Moms

that cancels the good
that silences the truth

Moms

do all that they can
with all that they have
for everyone they love
in any given minute

Moms are heroes
especially because
they are not perfect.

The only one who expects
a perfect mom
is Mom.

♥ Happy Mother’s Day ♥
to the beautiful, worthy,
beloved just as you are
♥ Moms of the world ♥
