It only takes a second to leave a like- and it really means the world to me.

At 2, 
We danced to the music.
My short body
Connected to yours. 
We were happy.
We were carefree.
The music swept us up
In a wave of laughter.

At 4,
We welcomed my brother
Brought to life by your body.
He cried. 
We smiled.
We were a big,
Happy family.
Loving, and loved.

At 6, 
We parted for the first time.
I went to kindergarten. 
You stayed home
Cooking and cleaning.
I missed you.
You missed me. 
But we stayed in each other's hearts.

At 10, 
We celebrated 
That I had lived a decade.
We danced to the music
And stayed up all night.
I loved life;
So did you. 
We were happy.

At 14, 
I found you
Crying on the floor.
You had crumbled under
The weight of the world.
I cried with you.
We were together.
And we will be, 
Forever.


 
To my mother <3
