"There are as many nights as days, and the one is just as long as the other in the year's course. Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness."
-Carl Jung

Since the day you brought me into this world,
I have loved you,
You are amazing and I could never afford,
To lose you.

You are my strength,
You are my smile,
You are my heart,
You are my mother.

For all of the times I have hurt you,
I am sorry,
But for all of the times when you have made me smile,
I am grateful.

Thank you for always being there,
Always being my friend,
Thank you for never leaving me,
And I’ll do the same for you,
For now and to forever and to the end.

The author's comments:
I wrote this poem for my mother, to show her how much she means to me. I feel that sometimes as a teenager, I can treat my mom like she doesn't mean a lot to me anymore. But that is the opposite of what I really feel in my heart. I will always love my mom.
