This one's for you, Mom

... a gritty tribute to the Moms everywhere

from Sheila Kelly

       Thanks

For all the years of caring,
For all the years of doing without,
so that your children could have,
For the many times you went hungry,
so that we could eat,

For the many years you went
without a winter coat
so that we could be warm,
For all the years of struggling
to get by on nothing,

For all the years of abuse you've taken,
in the name of love,
for all the embarrassment I've caused you,
You deserved much more, if not my love.
