You are my best friend
You are my protector
You are my biggest cheerleader
You always see the best things in me.
Growing up your pushed away love
Yet you always put our needs before your own
Surpassing unconditional love to us both.
You were and are pure strength
You were and are a fighter
You were and are a survivor.
You did all you could I see now and then yet that was still not enough.
You were there during
all the night tremors
all the flashbacks
all the demons haunting me
You stood by my side.
I am the most blessed daughter
To have witnessed
You like my patriarch; your father you remind me of.
For you and he
Show me what I need to embrace
Though the illness in me made it hard for me to show how proud I am to say you are my mum.
For you are my hero and I will always love you my mum.
