You put up with me at my worst, when certain blessings feel like a curse, you comfort me in times of grey and love me even though I’m gay.
Todays for you to rest and smile, even though all the while,
I pluck your nerves like an acoustic guitar playing a medley near or far that sometimes only a mother could love, I love you mom, let’s rise above!
I’m a work in progress but you already knew, I’m also so so much like you, so today I’ll be grateful for all you sacrificed, remember that when you think ‘Jesus Christ!’
‘I want to ring his neck and smack him upside the head!’ But that’s because you know if you didn’t I’d be dead.
I’m grateful for you in times of blue, I still smile because I’m something like you!
A work in progress nonetheless, I know you still care even when I’m at my messiest!
Thank you for the matriarchy you created with a father who’s also the greatest!
I can’t let you know how much I appreciate Mother the Great, Queen of everything far and wide, cost to cost, tide after tide!
I hope you read this and feel anew, there’s hope in me and there’s gold in you!
I’ll love you forever and always till the day I die, with that same blue twinkle in my eye as when you held me the very first time!
I can’t wait to flip over this rusty dime, polish it, shine it, see it gleam, but for now I’ll hold onto that dream.
The point I wanted to so poignantly state was how you are Mother the Great!
