Mother and me

Post  Jenna French on Sun Dec 11 2011, 14:57

This is the tale of mother and me
about a woman who taught her daughter to be me
to reach for my goals on my tip toes
and hold on tight as life goes
to stand tall before those who treat me wrong
to be brave and strong
to stand tall and sometimes small by my friends
to teach them friendship lasts till the end
this woman is so strong and kind
she is always on my mind
she brought me up with respect and a knowledge of wrong and right
this is the woman who would sit with me night after night
wipe my tears and hold my hand the way a mother does
we have a bond that can’t be seen by any but us
our bond is made of tears of pain and joy
It’s made of every fight we had and every tissue she shared when I fell out with a boy
of all the things mother and daughter share
it is a bond that is just there
it may sometimes take a knock
but it is as strong as any rock
I will never let that bond snap or crumble
after all its her I run to every time I stumble
she is amazing in my eyes
i often hide my feelings from others but our love is the 1 I would never disguise
the tale of mother and me does not end there
as we both for each other will always care
and now as a mother myself I know all she did from when I was younger and a pain
but from here the tale will begin again
as I will teach my daughter the same things I was taught
and just like my mother be there for every battle fought
whether it be with a girl boy or me
I will give my daughter what my mother gave me
the knowledge that she can do anything and reach any goal
and that her Nanna gave me this amazing soul
