For my Mama Julie

For you Mama …

I have nothing more to give you
But worries, anger and fear;
I have nothing more to spare
But headaches, tiredness and sickness.

I have nothing to boast
Bu t my failures and mistakes
I have nothing to be proud of
But my low grades and unbecoming attitudes.

I have nothing to share
But my problems and needs
I have nothing to pay
But my ignorance and nothingness.

But….

I have something more to give
Than worries, anger and fear
That something more to give
Is the gift of love that I can show.

I have something more to spare
Than headaches, tiredness and sickness
That something more to spare
Is my quality time to be with you.

I have something more to boast
Than my failures and mistakes
That something more to boast
Is my realization that I need you.

I have something more to be proud of
Than my low grades and unbecoming attitudes
That something more to be proud of
Is that I have you as my mother.

I have something more to share
Than my problems and needs
That something more to share
Is my relationship with God and you,

I have something more to pay
Than my ignorance and nothingness,
That something more to pay
Is my being a good daughter to you.

I love you mother,
And that’s something more
I may never show it, you may never see
But deep in my heart, you’re a great thing for me.

Love you Mama!
Thanks for everything!
