A Poem for Mom

You taught me how to walk, One baby step at a time
You always made sure that I am doing fine
Every step of the way, you held my hand
From the time I could crawl, until I can stand

When I grew up, I needed you less
You worried a lot that I would be a mess
I started to enjoy the company of my peers
I took you for granted and you shed a lot of tears

I broke your heart but I was so selfish to see
I was becoming the opposite of what you wanted me to be
I did everything my way and took advantage of the freedom
When I stumbled and fell, I remembered your words of wisdom

Now that I’m older, I look back and sigh…
“Those teenage years were crazy oh my!”
Parties, Lazy days, big and small lies just to have fun
I regret making you worry when I said “Be back at 1”

My life has changed when I reached twenty-four
I think clearly and wisely, I experiment no more!
I feel great doing things that make you happy and proud
Your approval is something I can never live without

It’s a great experience to see the real beauty
Of having a Mom who loves me so dearly
We fought and reconciled, We laughed and cried too
My Mother, my best friend, I’ll always love you…
