I wrote this for my mother to tell her how grateful I was for her standing by me in my toughest years. We never communicated well so this was the next best way of telling her I loved her.
I disappointed my mother a lot during my teenage years and for that I was sorry. Soon after giving her this poem, we both opened up and now we get on better that we ever have in years! !
Hopefully if one of you are looking for a way to open up to a friend or a family member, try writing it in a poem. It works wonders - trust me.
Many Times In My Life
Many times in my life I have disappointed you,
and begun to stray.
But you have pointed me in the right direction,
and sent me on my way.
Many times in my life I've needed a helping hand,
and someone to pull me up.
It was you who gave that helping hand,
and always cheered me up.
Many times I've been sad and down,
and taken it out on you.
But you stood by me and comforted me,
In times that I was bad.
Many times I've needed support,
and to know someone was there.
It was you who held me up,
and showed me how to care.
Many times I've wanted to tell you this,
But never got a chance.
You have helped me out in life,
and got me where I am.
You were there for me through thick and thin,
You never gave up on me and you taught me how to care.
From the deepest of my heart I want to say I love you,
And to thank you for being there for me in times of good or bad.
