to my mother

So I could get over myself 
take myself a little more lightly 
and stay grounded in this world 
you gave me the gift of you 
and I don’t want for anything else 
because without you 
I wouldn’t be here 
I wouldn’t be me 
you gave me individuality 
and so much more 
I could go on for days 
filling countless pages 
but time is short 
and actions always speak louder than words 
what more can I say 
when your actions speak volumes 
screaming them out loud 
so a toast to you, my mother
the one who gave me life 
you’re the best 
a star shining high 
a superlative adjective 
needing no object to be defined. 
You’re my mother 
and you are perfect.
