You were always so beautiful.

You smiled at me whenever I told you a joke.

You let me cry on your shoulder whenever I felt like crying.

You cared for me whenever I needed it.

You always gave me that good night kiss.

You let me use your arm as a pillow so I could sleep.

You were there for the longest time.

You held me together every time I fell apart.

You held our relationship longer than I have.

You got jealous when I had another girl in my life.

You knew I loved her almost as much as you.

You thought I would leave you forever.

You cried the nights I made you mad.

You were still there the night we went separate ways.

You don't hang out with me as much as we used to.

You always tell me you miss me, and I try to tell you too.

You wonder what I do in my life, when I don't know myself.

You always try to help, and sometimes I push away.

You always try, and never fail.

You love me, and still do.

You need to know something.

Mom, I love you, too.
