A Poem for a Mum, Just Because

Mum, a little something I've written for you, just because.

You made me who I am today,

And now I'd just like to say:

Thank you for everything,

Like the way you look at me when I sing,

All the times you pushed me on that swing,

And the amount of times you've made my phone ring,

I'd like to say Thank you for stopping the tears,

By simply using your ears,

To listen to a heart that needed to cry,

And how you fixed my broken lullaby.

I'd like to say Thank you for being who you are,

And for never being too far,

Just to be able to hold me on your knee,

Even when we do not agree,

You're the sweetest,

All you do is care,

Mum,

Thank you for the love we share!
