    Mom, where can I begin? It's like a long beautiful story that has yet to reach it's end..
    I would be so much further behind if not for you, and I can't even pretend..
    You’ve been the guiding factor that kept me from going over the brink
    I love you and learned things from you that you wouldn’t possibly think
    I owe you in ways that I’m not sure money can ever repay
    but with the life you lead, I know you’ll be rewarded some day
    your faith is inspiring, your heart is big and clear
    not being the son I think you deserve, is one of my greatest fears
    I wish I could take back all my mistakes and make you and dad proud
    I wish whenever I see you un-happy, I could make you smile
    I thank you for bearing with my procrastination
    I’m now making steps to change my final destination
    I respect you with all the respect I can muster
    from childhood, to pre-teen, to adult you’ve been a loyal, long-suffering mother
    in my opinion, mother’s day is all year around and not this one day
    but it gives me the opportunity to say some things I wanna say
    I lay down some nights and wonder how can one woman be so amazing
    with knowledge, good advice, and a moral code that’s unchanging
    raising 3 children on your own, and you did a wonderful job by yourself
    fighting through loneliness, our bad choices and even bad health
    just you still being here with me is a miracle in itself
    monetary value aside, you have enormous spiritual wealth.
    In less than 2 months, I hope to be able to make you believe in me
    as I’m on my way to being “all I can be”
    so mother, on your day I wish you lots of fun, love and happiness
    my goal is to be what you taught me to be, I’ll accept no less
    I love you more than the human vocabulary can personify
    but I want to start showing that with my actions and stop living a lie
    thank you for all the things you instilled in my heart and soul
    and give me a little more time and my life will come under control

    thank you and Happy Mothers Day!!

    Derrick H.
