Mother/Daughter

Ever patient, with unconditional love and support, you stand.

I trip, stumble, fall and reach for your helping hand.

But, resolute you stand, thinking I can pick myself up on my own.

Ever patient, with unconditional love and support, you stand.

I reach, climb, achieve the goal and look for your approval.

But, resolute you stand, thinking that I did it on my own.

I didn’t.

When I picked myself up, I was pulling on your legs.

When I did what I set out to do, I was standing on your shoulders.

With you standing resolute I know I am never on my own.
