My mom has this tendency to not let me do things because she's afraid to let me go out and if I get hurt she won't be there to help me so I wrote this about her to learn to let go.
You were the first person to hold me You were the first person to talk to me
You taught me how to walk You taught me how to talk
You had taught me everything I needed to know: Math, social studies, English, Spanish You even taught me how to smile when times got rough To keep my head up when things got down
You were there for all my falls You would help me back up Telling me it is okay Kissing me better
You were there for all my sporting events Even when we lost and I was crying You always found a way to make me feel better
Whenever we won a game You would always cheer louder than most girls on the team Even louder than the parents
You were there through my meltdowns Still there for me even when we fought You were still there for me through my stages When I was a terrible mess, and a terrible person to be around I knew you would always be there for me...
I know it's hard sometimes to let go But you will move on You still have John
I'm growing up I know I will always need you in my life I can call you sometimes
I have to go live the life you wanted me to have. As soon as you let me go, I can go live.
Just know you are always my mother and always will be the mother I have always wanted I love you!
