"You only live once but if you live is good, once is enough."


Dedicated to Linda Rizzo

You gave birth to me
Gave me life
You offered me everything
With your
Love


Support
You never gave up.
You raised me do
The right thing

I didn’t listen
No respect.
You taught me right from wrong
I did whatever

I wanted
Stubborn.
You showed me what love really was

I chose hate
But yet…
You never gave up.
You did everything you could

Just to make me happy.
But I always wanted more

Nothing was enough.
That didn’t stop you from loving me
You never gave up.
I thought you were the monster

I was
I hurt you

Verbally

Physically

Emotionally
I put you down
You never gave up.
The day finally came
I realized


I was wrong
It wasn’t you

It was me
Thank you
For staying by my side

Didn’t leave me
You still loved me
You never gave up.

The author's comments:
My mom and I have been through a lot together and I'm the one to blame. I've hurt her so much in the past but now I realize she didn't deserve it. I wrote this poem for her because she loves my poems and I know it'd mean a lot to her.
