Dear Mom

Dear Mom

You know how I was not the strongest kid when I was young

The never ending

Headaches

Coughs

Colds

You searched cure for me

Near and far

You never back down

From any challenges that comes your way

Harassed

Humiliated

Mocked

By our mutual enemy

But

You took all the bullets

For the sake of us,

Your children.

I admire your courage

Your strength

Your compassion

And tell us that everyday is

“Going to be okay”

There are not enough words to express

How grateful we are

To have you as our mom

Thank you for your unconditional love

Thank you for your never ending support

Thank you for giving us

The greatest gift of life.

Falling In Love With You

Falling In Love With You

There are times when I thought

Am I good enough to be standing by your side?

As you are far too kind

Too considerate

Too patient

Qualities that are too valuable

For my vulnerable self

As I am impatient

Emotional

Loud

Whenever I look down

You make sure to ask if I am okay

And when I bawl my eyes out

You hug me

Tightly

To calm me down

Eventually

I was able tell you

Of how grateful I am

Falling in love with you.

Listen

Listen

The sound of waves crashing on to boulders

Reminds me of your stubbornness

How you stood still by your opinion

Unwavering

The gust of wind that swayed deep rooted trees

Reminds me of your strength

Saving me

As I was about to fall

You pulled me to your chest

and said

“Clumsy”

But despite your composure

I am aware

That you are anxious

As I listen to

Your heart

Skipping

A beat.
