Dear Mother – Without You

Dear Mother …

Mother - Without You
Love You Mom

My mother,

Sitting here I think of you,

Across seas so far away,

Even then I know its true,

Without you, I would fall through.


Life would be difficult for me,

Breathless gasping for a little air,

I would be trudging along,

The material of life running threadbare.


Spanning across great distances,

I can feel your love, warmth, and care,

I know for sure my mere existence,

If not for you, would be a lifelong nightmare.


My Guiding Light

I have crossed sheer walls,

Without a stronghold,

Got up after back-breaking falls,

Kept going as each difficult moments unfolds.


My Mother without you I would be lost,

Stumbling at each obstacle searching always,

You find solutions, comfort me,

You walk with me holding my hand always,

I cannot thank you enough for what you do,

And continue to do every single day,

Your never-ending love, guidance, and support,

Makes my life real child’s play,
