Thank you mom

Staring back at me.Hearing words you’ve yet to say.

Anguish in the darkness.

An empty room.

Hours waiting here.

Calling, till fingers fail to find numbers.

Days without report.

Wounded, fearing the worst.

Recognizing, I’ve survived.

Seeing achievements mount.

Failures and success adding to life.

All the strife.

Here, looking through tears.

Staring back at me.

Remembering all the years.

Sorrows and sadness, now gladness.

Thank you mom.

Thank you.
