Young at heart

Her body ages
Yet her mind stays young
These changes affect her so harshly,
tormenting her ability to
Be

She struggles with these differences but keeps her head on

She cares too much,
about all those around her.
She lends a hand without thinking twice.
Think twice.

She knows what’s right
And has a firm belief of what’s wrong.

She’ll go out on a limb for you
and believe in you when no one else does.

She knows just how to comfort you and ease your tired mind.
She loves you for you, with no exceptions.
She will always be there
regardless of what you do.
She will not judge your actions, for she knows the true you
She has faith that this person will always shine through.

She understands that you are learning.
That you may trip and fall
But knows scratches won’t stop you.
She has seen you walk tall, she knows what you can do

So mom listen to this and hear my words carefully
You are loved more than you could ever know.
We admire your strength and your courage to glow in all situations.
Stop worrying about others and put you first.

You are an irreplaceable gem that is so precious to us.
