For My Mother

I can’t save time in a bottle,
or say I love you in a song.
The feelings are too complex,
The emotions far too strong.

I cannot comprehend it
Cannot find the words to say.
But were it not not for you, Mom
I would not be here today.

So for all the times you loved me,
When I would only push away.
For all the times you held me up,
and kept the darkness at bay.

I may not always show it,
But know that this is true.
For everything you give me
Mom, I love you.

Happy Birthday Mom. 🙂
