Ode to My Mother

by Emma, Age 12 , Grade 7, Easton Middle School, Easton , MD USA
Teacher: Mrs. Stinson


From the first day

 You always had a say.

Keeping me safe,

Keeping me warm,

Keeping me fed.


Our memories are priceless

All the time we spent.

From collecting photos,

To owning our first pet.


How far I have come,

All from the great support of you,

My mom.

Farther and farther

You push me.

Now as I grow I won’t need

 you as much.


But, thank you for doing

 what you do best,

being my mom.
