GRATITUDE

You are not in competition

with anyone but yourself,

You don’t have to prove a point

For I love you just the way you are.

If you think your grades matter,

Let me tell you, not to me

but certainly they do to the world

for that’s how your worth is weighed.

But I love you just the way you are.

Ever since the day of your birth,

all I prayed was to raise you as a

human being worthy to be loved.

Years rolled by with ups and downs

but you pulled through it all with

such grace that I feel the pangs of

guilt and shame wrench at my gut.

I ask myself, ” Am I being unjust and

unfair to my child?”

And then without pausing awhile

I move on with my round of DUTIES.

But remember I love you all the same.

For, I take great pride watching you

grow, all the eleven years racing by

in the wink of an eye.

Can’t thank you enough for all the

little help in those moments of chaos

when nothing else works.

You’re truly God’s best sent angel!
