Never Enough 2007
by Richard Milton Rosson
Sometimes I know the right words to say and give thanks for all you've done.
But then they fly up and away as quickly as they come.
How could I possibly thank you enough
The one who makes me whole,
The one to whom I owe my life
for the forming of my soul.
The one who tucked me in at night
The one who stopped my crying,
The one who was the expert at picking up when I was lying.
The one who saw me off to school and spent long days alone,
Yet magically produced a smile as soon as I came home.
The one who makes such sacrifices
to always put me first,
Who lets me test my broken wings in spite of how it hurts.
What way is there to thank you for your heart, your sweat, your tears,
For the ten thousand little things you've done for all these crazy years.
For changing with me as I changed
accepting all my flaws,
Not loving cause you had to,
But loving just because.
For never giving up on me when your wits had reached their end,
For always being proud of me
For being my best friend.
Look at all my qualities and see what I've become,
Do you see yourself in me?
The great job you have done?
All your hope and all your dreams,
the strength that no one sees,
A transfer over many years and your best was passed to me.
Thank You for the gift you give, for everything you do,
but thank you MOM, most of all for makin' my dreams come true.
