Dear Mom


Poem by Audra Ohm

You’re my rock,
When my feet are unsteady.
A place to lean and rest,
When the world feels heavy.

You’re my safe place,
When the winds are blowing.
A place of shelter,
When the tears are flowing.

You’re my mentor,
When I don’t know what to do.
A person I want to call,
When I need a breakthrough.

You’re my best friend,
When times are lonely.
Someone who’s always there,
Then points me to the One and Only,

You’re my past,
When I reminisce.
You helped raise me,
My goodnight kiss.

You’re my future,
When I dream of who I want to be.
Someone I will carry forever,
For the times I cannot see.

Dear Mom,

Thank you for all you do.
Thank you for paving a way.
Thank you for being the glue.

You are loved.
You are desired.
You are treasure.
You are admired.

You are my mom.
